Most widely held works by John Marston
The malcontent by John Marston( Book )
126 editions published between 1604 and 2014 in English and French and held by 2,357 libraries worldwide
"The true Duke of Genoa has lost his throne to the usurper Pietro. The Duke returns to court in disguise in order to expose the corruption and regain his rightful office. Resonating with echoes of Measure for Measure and Hamlet, Marston's tragicomedy is a fabulous study of courtly intrigue, betrayal and treachery."--Jacket
Eastward ho by George Chapman( Book )
55 editions published between 1780 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,513 libraries worldwide
A collaboration between Jonson, Chapman and Marston, 'Eastward Ho!' is a masterpiece of city comedy. Unique among the 'coterie' city comedies written for boy players, 'Eastward Ho!' gives all classes a full satiric treatment simultaneously didactic, ironic, and triumphantly comic. 'Eastward Ho!' was performed at the Blackfriars playhouse in 1605. The play may well have been provoked by Dekker and Webster's 'Westward Ho!', produced by Paul's Boys in 1604; 'Eastward Ho!' parodies the earlier play's form
The Dutch courtesan by John Marston( Book )
16 editions published between 1705 and 1997 in English and held by 1,363 libraries worldwide
"The Dutch Courtesan' is an early Jacobean stage play written by the dramatist and satirist John Marston circa 1604. It tells the story of two friends, the relaxed, pleasure-loving Freevill and the repressed Puritan Malheureux, and the turbulent relationship that both have with the passionate Dutch courtesan Franceschina. It explores the nature of human desire and the problems involved with trying to lead a 'good', moral life when sexuality is so fundamentally a part of man's nature. Critics have judged the play both anti-Puritan and anti-Stoic, and have also seen it as a satire on Thomas Dekker's contemporary play 'The Honest Whore."

The fawn by John Marston( Book )

The play tells the story of Duke Hercules, who disguises himself as a flattering courtier, the Fawn, in order to infiltrate the court of Duke Gonzago and observe the behaviour of his son Tiberio, who has been sent to Gonzago as an ambassador. In the process, Hercules observes the lechery of Gonzago's courtiers, who are all embroiled in seedy sexual adventures, and the vanity and stupidity of Gonzago himself, who is a pompous old windbag. At the play's conclusion, Hercules holds a symbolic Court of Cupid, in which all the foolish courtiers are arrested for their crimes against love and good sense
