Book Description

From Ben Jonsons "The Alchemist" to the anonymous "A Yorkshire Tragedy", from Thomas Dekkers "The Shoemakers Holiday" to John Fords "Tis Pity Shes a Whore", this essential guide provides clear and lively information on thirty-four great Elizabethan and Jacobean plays. Each chapter includes information on the plays source, the story, the author, the historical context, and the world of the play, as well as a section on the playwrights craft and the plays performance history. This book is for anyone wishing to understand this fascinating and fertile period in British drama, and will be invaluable for students of Shakespeare seeking a fuller understanding of the exciting theatrical times in which he wrote. This is a pocket-sized, easy-to-use guide that can be enjoyed by drama students and theatre-goers equally. The acclaimed "Faber Pocket Guide" series are gaining wider circulation with each new publication.
