Abstract:Chapter one explores the pervasive fascination and concern with cosmetics in a variety of documents, including travel writings, conduct books, theatrical records, anti-theatrical texts, sermons, cook books, medical texts, and anti-cosmetic pamphlet literature. Chapter two explores how Queen Elizabeth's use of cosmetics worked to consolidate a white English identity and inspire new forms of misogyny after her death, like those encoded in Middleton's The Revenger's Tragedy (1606). Chapter three explores the theme of racial impersonation in The Masque of Blackness, while Chapter four focuses most intensely on the forms of agency cosmetics enabled in women of different races, religions, and nationalities.
