Abstract

There is no uncertainty about the popularity of the Ottoman Turk in Early Modern Drama. This study will discuss the biased representations of and allusions made to the Ottoman Turk in several early modern plays, the whole of which exceeds 40 in number, and a distinct focus will be drawn on the playwrights‘ exploitative attitudes and the reasons motivating such attitudes towards the Turkish material, together with their impacts on the playgoers of the time, consequently, the society in general.
