Spoofed: Oscar Wilde, Charles Brookfield and The Poet and the Puppets

by Michael Seeney

Spoofed! Oscar Wilde, Charles Brookfield and "The Poet and the Puppets" reprints for the first time the most complete text of Brookfield's parody of Lady Windermere's Fan. The book includes details of the cast, costume, staging and music from the only production in 1892. A biographical note on Brookfield demonstrates his close involvement with the police investigating Wilde prior to the 1895 trials, and there are appendices detailing the plays and novels written by Brookfield and his stage appearances.
