An Illegitimate Legacy: Essays in Romantic Theater History in Memory of Jane Moody


I first met Jane Moody in Los Angeles in the early 1990s, on one of what would become many of her visits to Southern California, where she was drawn by the rich theater history collections at the Huntington Library in San Marino. We had been put in touch by Marilyn Butler, and Jane would later tell a story that had escaped my memory. It seems I was late arriving to the coffee shop where we agreed to meet, and everything she knew about me in advance-an acquaintance of Marilyn Butler, living in Pasadena, working at the Huntington Library, and writing about Cobbett's Rural Rides-had her tentatively approaching men over the age of sixty-five to see if they might be Kevin Gilmartin.
