Double falsehood, or, The distressed lovers by William Shakespeare( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A play performed at the Theatre Royal in London in 1727 which the producer, Lewis Theobald, claimed to have adapted from a Shakespeare play. The plot is a version of the story of Cardenio found in Cervantes' Don Quixote as translated by Thomas Shelton and published in 1612. Documentary records list a play by William Shakespeare and John Fletcher performed in 1613, probably entitled The History of Cardenio. Is this the missing play or a literary fraud?

Electra by Sophocles( Book )
19 editions published between 1714 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Electra recounts the murders of Clytemnestra and Aegisthus by Clytemnestra's son Orestes, to avenge their murder of his father Agamemnon, commander of the Greeks at Troy, upon his return home. Sophocles' version is presented from the viewpoint of Electra, Orestes' sister, who laments her father, bears witness to her mother's crime, and for years endures her mother's scorn. When Orestes arrives at last, her mood shifts from grief to joy as Orestes carries out the bloody vengeance. Despite her overwhelming passion for just revenge, Electra admits that her own actions are shameful." "Sophocles presents this story as a savage though necessary act of vengeance, vividly depicting Electra's grief, anger, and exultation. This translation equals the original in ferocity of expression and leaves intact the inarticulate cries of suffering and joy that fill the play"--Jacket
