ABSTRACT
The article discusses scholarly interest in Islam and modern English drama which goes back to Louis Wann's 1915 "The Oriental in Elizabethan Drama," and Warner Grenelle Rice's 1927 "Turk, Moor, and Persian in English Literature." Several essays that contribute in several ways to the ongoing development of understanding Islam and early modern English and modern drama include "Guy of Warwick and Elizabeth Repertory," by Annaliese Connolly and "Now Will I be a Turke: Performing Ottoman Identity in Thomas Goffe's The Courageous Turk."
