Editorial Reviews

Plays International

Here's a good idea, The Arden Shakespeare, purveyor of handsome editions of individual plays, now expands the brand with Arden Early Modern Drama. Scholars increasingly explore Jacobethan plays, and a series that takes them just as seriously as the Shakespeare canon is very welcome. You'll find the same small design, ample font size, enthusiastic historical/cultural context, full performance history and munificent annotation. For students, actors and less specialized lovers of Renaissance doings, these editions may become the luxe choice...Leah S. Marcus' lively introduction situates it in Jacobean London...Wonderful illustrations...I hope the series will lure directors to stage these alluring plays.
Independent

Webster took tragedy to a new level in the psychology of evil, actual horror and callousness.
Sunday Times (of London)

Webster's language has a musical poetry second only to Shakespeare's.
