As you like it by William Shakespeare( Book )

31 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare's As You Like It can appear bright or sombre in performance: a feast of language and a delight for comic actors; or a risk-taking exploration of gender roles. This edition offers an account of what makes the play both innocent and dangerous, mapping the complexities of its setting (a no-man's-land related to both France and England) and giving an ample commentary on its language and an analytical account of performance."--Jacket
Renaissance and reformations : an introduction to early modern English literature by Michael Hattaway( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Designed for both students and general readers, this introduction to Renaissance and Reformation literature offers a description of early modern habits of writing and reading, of publication and stage performance. It considers the ways in which early modern writers constructed the past and designed the present, wrote about people and places, recovered and adapted classical genres, and tackled religious and secular controversies." "All these topics are illustrated with a profusion of excerpts from early modern texts, including works by More, Erasmus, Wyatt, Spenser, Philip and Mary Sidney, Marlowe, Kyd, Shakespeare, Campion, Daniel, Donne, Southwell, Dekker, Taylor 'the water-poet', Aemilia Lanyer, Jonson, Chapman, Middleton, Mary Wroth, Ralegh, Greville, Wotton, Herbert and Milton. Throughout, readers are reminded that the consequences of the English reformations were as important as the better known influences of the Renaissance."--Jacket

A new companion to English Renaissance literature and culture by Michael Hattaway( )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this revised and greatly expanded edition of the original Companion, some eighty of the very best modern scholars, including Judith H. Anderson, Patrick Collinson, Alison Findlay, Germaine Greer, Malcolm Jones, Arthur F. Kinney, James Knowles, Arthur F. Marotti, Robert S. Miola, and Greg Walker, come together to offer an original and far-reaching assessment of English Renaissance literature and culture. The expansion into two volumes -- with over twenty new essays -allows for the exploration of further aspects of a wide range of topics, including material culture, theatre - both inside and outside the playhouses -- sectarian writing, further forms of popular writing, the history of the body, gardens, law, and ecology in early modern England. Sections are interspersed with new readings of key texts, both canonical and non-canonical, and are designed to exemplify aspects of the topics dealt with in the remaining chapters. All of the essays from the first edition, along with the recommendations for further reading, have been reworked or updated. Unrivalled in range and in its exploration of unfamiliar literary and cultural territories, the Companion offers a pioneering study of the phenomenon of the Renaissance."--Publisher's description
The knight of the burning pestle by Francis Beaumont( Book )

32 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Let him kill a lion with a pestle, husband; let him kill a lion with a pestle.' So exclaims the Grocer's wife who, with her husband and servants, is attending one of the London's elite playhouses where a theatre comany has just begun to perform. Peeved at the fact that all the plays they see are satires on the lives and values of London's citizenry, the Grocer and his wife interrupt and demand a play that instead contains chivalric quests and courtly love. What's more, they nominate their apprentice Rafe to take on the hero's role of the knight in this entirely new play. The author, Francis Beaumont, ends up not just satirising the grocers' naive taste for romance but parodying his own example of citizen comedy. This play-within-a-play becomes a pastiche of contemporary plays that scorned those who were not courtiers or at least gentlemen or ladies. Like Cervantes in Don Quixote, Beaumont exposes the folly of those that take representations for realities, but also celebrates their idealism and love of adventure. The editor, Michael Hattaway, is editor of plays by Shakespeare and Jonson as well as of several volumes of critical essays, and author of Elizabethan Popular Theatre, Hamlet: The Critics Debate, and Renaissance and Reformations: An Introduction to Early Modern English Literature. He is Professor Emeritus of English Literature in the University of Sheffield."--Publisher's description
