Editorial Reviews

Review


"Lomax and Oxford are to be conreatulated, as several of these plays have been unavailable, and they are fine contributions.... The texts are clear and carefully done. Spelling and punctuation have been modernized, and the editor provides a good, brief introduction to each of the plays, a chronology of Ford's life, and a glossary."--Choice

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All of these in the Oxford English Drama series are well worth the money. Thank heavens (and Oxford) that they are in print at this price. I am collecting them all. I've got a shelf of them now. Jane Smiley, writing on something else, said one doesn't need Shakespeare's contemporaries to recognize his greatness. I feel that misses a giant point: so much of our understanding and enjoyment of Shakespeare can be enriched by reading the Bard's contemporaries. In fact, if we want to get very deep into any "Jacobethan" drama we need exposure to a bunch of it. Besides, and here is the great part -- much of it is very good. I saw a wonderful production of The Duchess Of Malfi this summer and took my Oxford paperback along for consulting -- not that it was required to enjoy the show. Oh, and the further perk is that we can read Perkin Warbeck and wonder just what the heck Eliot meant by calling it a perfect play! Now, that is what I call fun.
