The most extensive new collection in this field published in more than three decades, English Renaissance Drama: A Norton Anthology surveys the astonishing, and astonishingly varied, dramatic works written and performed in Elizabethan and Jacobean England.
Popular in their own time, the 27 plays included here—by Christopher Marlowe, Ben Jonson, John Webster, Thomas Middleton, among many others—reveal why these playwrights’ achievements, like Shakespeare’s, deserve reading, teaching, and performing afresh in our time. Edited by a team of exceptional scholars and teachers, this anthology opens an extraordinary tradition in drama to new readers and audiences.

I had enrolled within my local college in a course study of English Renaissance Drama; for my personal entertainment. This book was our classroom text.
I loved it!!
The Tragdies and Revenge, oh my!!
I truly wish that such a course would had been available when I was first obtaining my University Degrees prior to joining the military! I could had used some of these very tactics written within this text!!
I have kept this book and it is now apart of my personal library. And it still gets read! WONDERFUL!!
