“Arthur Kinney’s superb anthology covers the full range of early modern performance in England … I have used it for undergraduate courses with great success; everything I needed in a single volume.” Peter Holland, University of Notre Dame [of the first edition]
“The new edition of Arthur Kinney’s Renaissance Drama is smashing … Kinney’s anthology reveals the rich and varied nature of theatrical culture in late medieval and early modern England. A great resource for teaching in both graduate and undergraduate courses.” Jean E. Howard, Columbia University
“… a first–rate piece of scholarly work” Fran Teague, University of Georgia
From the Back Cover
This pioneering collection of non–Shakespearean Renaissance drama covers the full sweep of dramatic performances in the England Shakespeare knew. Newly edited from manuscript and quarto, all the major playwrights are here, among them Marlowe, Jonson, Middleton, and Webster. At the same time, the volume features plays, pageants, and entertainments not widely anthologized elsewhere, such as the coronation entries of Elizabeth I and Queen Anne, and Thomas Heywood’s A Woman Killed with Kindness.
The second edition includes new emphasis on women as authors and subjects. More early material has also been added, such as Noah and The Second Shepherds’ Play. Mary Sidney’s The Tragedy of Antony has been included in its entirety, as have John Marston’s The Malcontent and Ben Jonson’s The Masque of Queens. As before, extensive footnotes clarify special terms and hidden meanings, and introductions to each of the individual works highlight relevant socio–historical information. A general introduction recalls the cultural history of the Shakespearean age in early modern England.See all Product Description
