A collaboration between Jonson, Chapman and Marston, 'Eastward Ho!' is a masterpiece of city comedy. Unique among the 'coterie' city comedies written for boy players, 'Eastward Ho!' gives all classes a full satiric treatment simultaneously didactic, ironic, and triumphantly comic. 'Eastward Ho!' was performed at the Blackfriars playhouse in 1605. The play may well have been provoked by Dekker and Webster's 'Westward Ho!', produced by Paul's Boys in 1604; 'Eastward Ho!' parodies the earlier play's form

Benjamin "Ben" Jonson was born in June, 1572. A contemporary of William Shakespeare, he is best known for his satirical plays; Volpone, The Alchemist, and Bartholomew Fair, and his equally accomplished lyric poems. A man of vast reading and a seemingly insatiable appetite for controversy, including time in jail and a penchant for switching faiths, Jonson had an unparalleled breadth of influence on Jacobean and Caroline playwrights and poets. In 1616 Jonson was appointed by King James I to receive a yearly pension of Đ60 to become what is recognized as the first official Poet Laureate. He died on the 6th of August, 1637 at Westminster and is buried in the north aisle of the nave at Westminster Abbey. A master of both playwriting and poetry his reputation continues to endure and reach a new audience with each succeeding generation

The story is set in an otherwise-unnamed duchy in Italy, ruled by Duke Alphonso. As the story opens, the Duke and his son and heir Prince Vincentio are both in love with the beautiful Margaret, the daughter of Earl Lasso. Alphonso's plan to marry the girl (though he is much too old for her) is supported by his court favorite Medice, a figure roundly disliked by the other characters. Medice is considered a poseur and vulgarian; though he masquerades as a great lord, he admits that he is illiterate. Vincentio's plan to marry Margaret himself is seconded by his close friend Lord Strozza, and Strozza's wife Cynanche. The two have a foolish nephew called Pogio who is the play's main clown

Hero and Leander by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

54 editions published between 1598 and 2009 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hero and Leander is a poetic retelling of a classic Greek legend. The poem relates a story of forbidden love in which Greek gods intervene to unite the two lovers. Hero and Leander was unfinished at the time of Christopher Marlowe's death, but was completed posthumously by George Chapman. No one is entirely sure how Marlowe himself would have finished it, but the sections that he was able to complete are notable for their unique use of verse and their lyrical beauty. Marlowe's poetic output was minimal, owing to his short life and emphasis on drama, but his position in the canon of English poetry has been cemented, thanks largely to the quality of this single, unfinished work
