Michaelmas Term by Thomas Middleton( Book )
41 editions published between 1607 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,341 libraries worldwide
"One of five satiric city comedies that the young playwright Thomas Middleton wrote for the boy players of St. Paul's Catherdral sometime before 1607, Michaelmas Term is set in a vividly detailed, realistic urban milieu at the start of London's social season. The play comes alive through the central contest between Ephestian Quomodo, an ambitious, land-hungry city merchant, and Richard Easy, a naive land-owning gallant just arrived in the city. Easy is soon deep in dept and his struggle to recoup his losses and reclaim his land from Quomodo takes place against a sharply drawn set of London types - Quomodo's socially and sexually ambitious wife and daughter, the Scottish upstart Andrew Lethe and his mistress the Country Wench eager to exchange her virginity for an elegant new wardrobe." "This edition, newly collated and edited, features complete explanations of the play's often bawdy exchanges and the complex stage action of the gulling and secondary plots. It will be invaluable for advanced students of the Middleton canon as well as all those interested in early modern London and its vibrant theatrical culture, especially the tradition of boy choristers as professional actors."--Jacket

"Sebastian has a problem. He's in love with a girl but his father won't agree to their marriage. In desperation he turns to the one person who can help him, the fearless and feisty 'roaring girl' Moll Cutpurse. In a London fuelled by greed and desire, the charismatic, cross-dressing heroine Moll has the world wrapped around her little finger, and she has a plan. Cutting a joyously independent path through the underhand scheming and petty vendettas of the London underworld, Moll proves more than a match for any man."--Page 4 of cover

The witch by Thomas Middleton( Book )
56 editions published between 1845 and 2014 in English and French and held by 721 libraries worldwide
<Span style="font-style: italic;">The Witch (1615/16?), categorised by its author as 'a tragi-comedy', pits the intrigues of a group of Italian aristocrats against themalevolent practices of Hecate and her witches' coven, leaving theaudience with the impression that human malevolence is by far thefiercer and more effective. This edition sets the play into itsdramatic and literary contexts, ranging from Shakespeare's <span style="font-style: italic;">Macbeth andMiddleton's own later tragedies to Reginald Scot's sceptical <span style="font-style: italic;">Discoveryof Witchcraft and King James's virulent <span style="font-style: italic;">Daemonologie . It also arguesthat Middleton wrote it as a topical satire to capitalise on thescandal involving Frances Howard, who obtained a divorce from the Earlof Essex on the grounds that he had been sexually incapacitated bywitchcraft; she was also rumoured to have tried to poison him. Middleton exposes his noble characters precisely by letting them getaway with murder

The life of Timon of Athens by William Shakespeare( Book )
21 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 519 libraries worldwide
"Timon of Athens is a bitterly intriguing study of a fabulously rich man who wastes his wealth on his friends, and, when he is finally impoverished, learns to despise humanity with a hatred that drives him to his grave. Its response to matters topical in Jacobean London sharpens its thrust as satire. Yet the setting in ancient Athens allows it to read as a timeless fable, deeply relevant to a modern society that sees itself as pursuing material prosperity to the point of self-destruction." "The play's plot structure is schematically clear, and the poetry of Timon's rage is arresting in its savage intensity. Yet readers have often detected loose ends, and the tone of writing is uneven. In his introduction, John Jowett explains how these characteristics arise because the play was written as a collaboration between Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton. This edition pays full justice to Middleton's presence, explaining how his contribution gave the play its distinctive edge. We as readers need to read this play as a dialogue between writers of different temperaments, and this edition is the first to make such a reading possible." "The introduction provides the fullest account of the play's performance history available. The commentary is the most detailed ever to have been published. Appendices include source materials and a listing of major productions worldwide."--Jacket
Hengist, king of Kent; or, The mayor of Queenborough by Thomas Middleton( Book )
15 editions published between 1938 and 2003 in English and held by 499 libraries worldwide
"Hengist, King of Kent (also known as The Mayor of Quinborough) was one of the most popular plays of the 1630s and 1640s. Written by Thomas Middleton by 1619, its main tragic plot concerns the invasion of the Saxons, led by Hengist, into Britain and the division of the kingdom into heptarchies, one of which, Kent, Hengist comes to rule. The play exists in two manuscript texts (both from the 1640s) and an early printed quarto (1661); this is one of the rare plays of the period that exists in early manuscript copy."--Provided by publisher
