"Philaster is a tragicomedy by Beaumont and Fletcher which has much in common with Shakespeare's late plays such as The Winter's Tale. Set in a fictionalised Sicily, it has the complex plot of love, disguise and the threat of death much loved by early modern theatre-goers. This edition provides an authoritative, modernised text by a leading scholar with detailed on-page commentary notes giving readers a deeper understanding of the play. The comprehensive, illustrated introduction discusses Philaster from a performance perspective as well as its relation to Shakespearean drama, and places it in its historical and critical contexts."--Publisher description
A king and no king by Francis Beaumont( Book )
86 editions published between 1619 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,714 libraries worldwide
"A popular and influential play from its first performance in 1611 until the early eighteenth century, A King and No King helped establish Beaumont and Fletcher as leading playwrights of the day, and tragicomedy as the seventeenth century's favoured dramatic genre." "Accompanying this newly edited text, an introduction explores the play's sources, both literary and dramatic, and offers a thorough reconsideration of it social and political context. Lee Bliss finds the entertaining, wish-fulfilment tragicomic form not incompatible with a serious critical engagement with contemporary issues of royal absolutism, good governance, and the political role of the aristocracy. In addition, this edition provides the fullest available account of A King and No King's stage history, tracing the shifts in cultural mores that eroded its popularity and ultimately consigned it to the study rather than the stage."--Jacket

The best Elizabethan plays by William Roscoe Thayer( Book )
11 editions published between 1890 and 1901 in English and Undetermined and held by 590 libraries worldwide
This volume contains some of the finest plays of the Elizabethan era, including Christopher Marlowe's The Jew of Malta. Reading Marlowe's work alongside that of his most prominent contemporaries offers a worthwhile opportunity to compare and contrast. The Elizabethan era was a thrilling, fertile period of creative production when plays were one of the most common forms of entertainment. Unfortunately, most of the these plays have been lost, but this volume contains some of the finest examples to have survived. Read Marlowe, then hold his work up to that of other dramatists like Ben Johnson, John Webster and William Shakespeare
