The life of Timon of Athens by William Shakespeare( Book )

115 editions published between 1959 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Karl Klein's edition of Timon of Athens introduces Shakespeare's play as a complex exploration of a corrupt, moneyed society, and Klein sees the protagonist not as a failed tragic hero, but as a rich and philanthropic nobleman, surrounded by greed and sycophancy, who is forced to recognise the inherent destructiveness of the Athenian society from which he retreats in disgust and rage." "Klein establishes Timon as one of Shakespeare's late works, arguing, contrary to recent academic views, that evidence for other authors besides Shakespeare is inconclusive. The edition argues that the play is neither tragedy, satire nor comedy, but a subtle and complete drama whose main characters contain elements of all three genres."--Jacket

Dido, Queen of Carthage, and the massacre at Paris by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

20 editions published between 1968 and 1974 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of Dido Queen of Carthage focuses on the classical figure of Dido, the Queen of Carthage. There are strong homosexual themes in this play. It tells an intense dramatic tale of Dido and her fanatical love for Aeneas (induced by Cupid), Aeneas' betrayal of her and her eventual suicide on his departure for Italy. The playwrights depended upon Books 1, 2, and 4 of the Aeneid of Virgil as their main source. The opening scene, with its emphasis on homosexuality, as an indication of Marlowe's own emotional orientation when he wrote this play. The Massacre at Paris is an Elizabethan play that concerns the Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre, which took place in Paris in 1572, and the part played by the Duc de Guise in those events

52 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As You Like It has sometimes seemed a subversive play that exposes the instability of gender roles and traditional values. In other eras it has been prized - or derided - as a reliable celebration of conventional social mores. The play's ability to compass these extremes tells an interesting story about changing cultural and theatrical practices. This edition provides a detailed history of the play in production, both on stage and on screen
