Considered a Jacobean tragicomedy, The Two Noble Kinsmen was first published in 1634 and is commonly attributed to William Shakespeare and John Fletcher, a contemporary playwright. Inspired by Chaucer's "The Knight's Tale" from his The Canterbury Tales, the play's first scenes of Acts I, III and V are certain to have been written by Shakespeare. Interestingly, The Two Noble Kinsmen is the only one of Shakespeare's plays that has never been adapted for film or television

The tragedy of Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare( Book )
32 editions published between 1883 and 1934 in English and held by 362 libraries worldwide
"Troilus and Cressida, long considered one of Shakespeare's most problematic plays, is both difficult and fascinating. Largely neglected during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, it has recently proved popular and rewarding on the stage as well as in the study. This edition questions certain received ideas about the play's text, especially the relationship between Quarto and Folio, and offers several new readings of old problems. Dawson's textual choices are often surprising but at the same time carefully grounded. He views the play from a performance perspective - frequently in the Commentary as well as in the detailed section on stage history in the Introduction. The Introduction also covers the cultural context in which the play was written, probes the controversy about its early performance, and provides extensive analysis of character, language, genre, and contemporary significance."--Jacket
