Hannah Cowley (14 March 1743 – 11 March 1809) was an English dramatist and poet. Although Cowley's plays and poetry did not enjoy wide popularity after the nineteenth century, critic Melinda Finberg rates Cowley as "one of the foremost playwrights of the late eighteenth century" whose "skill in writing fluid, sparkling dialogue and creating sprightly, memorable comic characters compares favourably with her better-known contemporaries, Goldsmith and Sheridan." Cowley’s plays were produced frequently during her lifetime. The major themes of her plays - including her first, The Runaway (1776), and her major hit which is being revived, The Belle's Stratagem (1780) - revolve around marriage and how women strive to overcome the injustices imposed by family life and social custom.

  • Hannah Cowley (14 mars 1743 – 11 mars 1809) est une dramaturge et poétesse anglaise. Bien que les pièces de théâtre et les poèmes d'Annah Cowley ne connaissent pas une grande popularité après le XIXe siècle, la critique Melinda Finberg considère Hannah Cowley comme « l'un des dramaturges les plus notables de la fin du XVIIIe siècle », dont « l'écriture fluide, les dialogues pétillants et la création de personnages mémorables et plein de vie se comparent favorablement à ses contemporains plus connus, Oliver Goldsmith et Richard Brinsley Sheridan ». Les pièces d'Hannah Cowley sont fréquemment jouées de son vivant. Les thèmes principaux de ces pièces - y compris la première, The Runaway (1776), et la plus fameuse, (en) (1780) - tournent autour du mariage et de la façon dont les femmes parviennent à surmonter les injustices que leur font subir la vie familiale et les coutumes sociales.
