Most widely held works by Thomas Heywood
A woman killed with kindness by Thomas Heywood( Book )
76 editions published between 1617 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,685 libraries worldwide
A woman struggles to survive, and then struggles to die, in Thomas Heywood's startling domestic tragedy about the possession and punishment of women, probably first published in 1607. The marriage of John Frankford, a middling country gentleman, and his wife Anne is comfortable, if uneventful, until he gives his friend Wendoll the free use of his table and purse. Wendoll takes even more than was offered, and confesses his desperate love to Anne, who takes pity on him, and together they fall into infidelity. When they are discovered John banishes his wife to a distant manor, forbidden to see their two children, and it is in the comfort of her exile that she will starve herself to death. In the subplot, a woman devoted to her brother is offered as payment for his debts. Usually considered to be a domestic tragedy, 'A Woman Killed With Kindness' is complex in its didacticism, as Heywood explores the boundaries of marital punishment, and the moral weight of mercy

The first and second parts of King Edward IV by Thomas Heywood( Book )
18 editions published between 1842 and 2009 in English and held by 520 libraries worldwide
Yet the playwright produced a text which was at once generically complex (the play blurs the distinction between chronicle history and 'domestic' tragedy), brilliantly assured in its dramatic craftsmanship, and politically explosive. The play depicts the streets and houses in which its original spectators lived and worked with a precision unprecedented in English writing. But this vividly realised London is under assault, first from rebels outside its walls, and subsequently (and more seriously) from the predations of two monarchs."
Sallust by Sallust( Book )
15 editions published between 1924 and 1967 in English and held by 403 libraries worldwide
Though biased, Sallust's extant work is valuable. It shows lively characterisation (in speeches after Thucydides' manner) and attempts to explain the meaning of events. The work on Catiline has been called a study in social pathology. Sallust's style anticipates that of the early Empire. -- Jacket

Ars amatoria, book I by Ovid( Book )
18 editions published between 1612 and 2000 in English and Latin and held by 267 libraries worldwide
In his efforts to make the Ars a seventeenth-century poem, Heywood contemporizes Ovid's references to dress, behavior, courtship, marriage, games, theater, agriculture, horsemanship, wars, literature - all of which the commentaries explain at great length." "Loues Schoole will find readership in these areas: early modern history, literature, and culture; classical studies; Renaissance drama; the history of sexuality; and translation theory."--Jacket
