Knif, Henrik
Gentlemen and Specators. Studies in Journals, Opera and the Social Scene in Late Stuart London

Henrik Knif attempts to outline ways in which the English élite encourage Italian opera as a suitable answer to its urge to express a cultural as well as a social distinctiveness. The clash between the manners and ideologies of a courtly cosmopolitanism and the opinions of those who held to a more civic, and patriotic, persuation forms a recurrent theme in this collection of studies.
