The first essay collection devoted to Thomas Holcroft''s life and work, this volume is a reassessment of his contributions to a remarkable range of literary genres-drama, poetry, fiction, autobiography and political philosophy. The contributors situate Holcroft''s self-fashioning as a member of London''s literati, his central role among the London radical reformers and intelligentsia, and his theatrical innovations within on-going explorations of the late eighteenth-century public sphere of letters and debate.
