Eastward ho by George Chapman( Book )

86 editions published between 1780 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,558 WorldCat member 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 gentleman usher by George Chapman( Book )

The story is set in an otherwise-unnamed duchy in Italy, ruled by Duke Alphonso. As the story opens, the Duke and his son and heir Prince Vincentio are both in love with the beautiful Margaret, the daughter of Earl Lasso. Alphonso's plan to marry the girl (though he is much too old for her) is supported by his court favorite Medice, a figure roundly disliked by the other characters. Medice is considered a poseur and vulgarian; though he masquerades as a great lord, he admits that he is illiterate. Vincentio's plan to marry Margaret himself is seconded by his close friend Lord Strozza, and Strozza's wife Cynanche. The two have a foolish nephew called Pogio who is the play's main clown

Hero and Leander, 1598 by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

Marlowe's poem relates the Greek legend of Hero and Leander, youths living in cities on opposite sides of the Hellespont. Hero is a priestess or devotee of Venus in Sestos. At a festival in honor of her deity, Venus and Adonis, she is seen by Leander, a youth from Abydos on the opposite side of the Hellespont. Leander falls in love with her, and she reciprocates. Both young people are described as having more than human beauty. Leander is described as so attractive that even men find him beautiful. The homoerotic undertones of Leander's beauty are a foreshadowing of a future event in the poem. The edition read here includes the continuation by George Chapman

Hero and Leander by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

25 editions published between 1598 and 1992 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hero and Leander is a poetic retelling of a classic Greek legend. The poem relates a story of forbidden love in which Greek gods intervene to unite the two lovers. Hero and Leander was unfinished at the time of Christopher Marlowe's death, but was completed posthumously by George Chapman. No one is entirely sure how Marlowe himself would have finished it, but the sections that he was able to complete are notable for their unique use of verse and their lyrical beauty. Marlowe's poetic output was minimal, owing to his short life and emphasis on drama, but his position in the canon of English poetry has been cemented, thanks largely to the quality of this single, unfinished work
