A woman killed with kindness by Thomas Heywood( Book )

105 editions published between 1617 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A woman struggles to survive, and then struggles to die, in Thomas Heywood's startling domestic tragedy about the possession and punishment of women, probably first published in 1607. The marriage of John Frankford, a middling country gentleman, and his wife Anne is comfortable, if uneventful, until he gives his friend Wendoll the free use of his table and purse. Wendoll takes even more than was offered, and confesses his desperate love to Anne, who takes pity on him, and together they fall into infidelity. When they are discovered John banishes his wife to a distant manor, forbidden to see their two children, and it is in the comfort of her exile that she will starve herself to death. In the subplot, a woman devoted to her brother is offered as payment for his debts. Usually considered to be a domestic tragedy, 'A Woman Killed With Kindness' is complex in its didacticism, as Heywood explores the boundaries of marital punishment, and the moral weight of mercy

The first and second parts of King Edward IV by Thomas Heywood( Book )

28 editions published between 1842 and 2015 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yet the playwright produced a text which was at once generically complex (the play blurs the distinction between chronicle history and 'domestic' tragedy), brilliantly assured in its dramatic craftsmanship, and politically explosive. The play depicts the streets and houses in which its original spectators lived and worked with a precision unprecedented in English writing. But this vividly realised London is under assault, first from rebels outside its walls, and subsequently (and more seriously) from the predations of two monarchs."

Sallust by Sallust( Book )

15 editions published between 1924 and 1967 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The earliest Roman historian with complete works to his name, Sallust (86-c. 35 B.C.) was a senator of the Roman Republic and younger contemporary of Cicero, Pompey and Julius Caesar. His Catilino's War tells of the conspiracy in 63 B.C. led by L. Sergius Catilino, who plotted to assassinate numerous senators and take control of the government, but was thwarted by Cicero. Sallust's vivid account of Roman public life shows a Republic in decline, prey to moral corruption and internal strife. In The Jugurthine War he describes Rome's fight in Africa against the king of the Numidians from 111 to 105 B.C., and provides a damning picture of the Roman aristocracy. Also included in this volume are the major surviving extracts from Sallust's now fragmentary Histories, depicting Rome after the death in 78 B.C. of the dictator Sulla." "A. J. Woodman's translation retains the individualism of the original Latin, while his introduction discusses Sallust's life and political career and his approach lo writing history. This edition includes chronologies, further reading, an index, maps and extensive notes."--Jacket

In his efforts to make the Ars a seventeenth-century poem, Heywood contemporizes Ovid's references to dress, behavior, courtship, marriage, games, theater, agriculture, horsemanship, wars, literature - all of which the commentaries explain at great length."
