These exciting essays explore aspects of fame, notoriety and transgression in a wide range of performers and playwrights including David Garrick, Oscar Wilde, Ellen Terry, Laurence Olivier and Sarah Kane, examining the ingenious ways in which these stars have negotiated fame. The essays also analyse the complex relationships between discourses of celebrity and questions of gender, spectatorship and the operation of cultural markets.
