Shakespearian comedy by H. B Charlton( Book )

134 editions published between 1937 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The progress of comedy from its Greek origins has been infinitely fuller, more varied and richer than the growth of tragedy since the Greeks gave it their characteristic stamp - and yet it is the philosophy of tragedy which has drawn the attention of most writers, while the study of comedy has been comparatively neglected. This book attempts to redress the balance in favour of comedy and to act as a basis for wiser and more competent efforts for making up the enormous leeway into which the consideration of comedy has fallen in comparison with the progress which has been made in exploring the grounds of criticism in tragedy. -- from book jacket

Edward II; [a play] by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

35 editions published between 1933 and 1966 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new edition, Charles Forker provides the most complete and detailed edition of Edward II ever published."--BOOK JACKET. "The introduction contains a fresh analysis of the first quarto (including new evidence of its original dating) and a reconsideration of the play's complex relation to the Shakespearean histories that preceded and followed it. Charles Forker offers a fascinating and far-reaching discussion of Marlowe's use of sources, and presents a new argument for the drama's five-act structure. He delves into the conflicting and controversial opinions concerning the genre and sexual politics of the play, and also includes the fullest record of the stage history ever assembled."--BOOK JACKET. "With meticulous scholarship, Forker has collated some forty-six editions (including the important, rare, and usually ignored editions of Broughton and Oxberry in 1818). The appendices provide substantive variants from the Broughton and Oxberry texts as well as generous extracts from the sources. This edition will stand as the definitive scholarly text for Marlowe's most provocative play for years to come."--BOOK JACKET
