Most widely held works by A. R Braunmuller
The Cambridge companion to English Renaissance drama by A. R Braunmuller( Book )

60 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers students factual and interpretative material about the principal theaters, playwrights, and plays of the most important period of English drama, from 1580 to 1642. Ten distinguished scholars from Britain and North America have made fresh, informative, and challenging studies of the drama. The Companion covers a wide range of vital information on theaters, dramaturgy, and the social, cultural, and political conditions in which the drama was produced and perceived, as well as critical, analytical comment on individual plays and typical sequences, and guidance on the unique contributions of playwrights. Shakespeare's plays are discussed in appropriate contexts, but do not dominate the discussion. The exploration of the works of lesser known artists such as Lyly, Dekker, and Shirley, along with such undergraduate staples as Marlowe, Webster, and Middleton contribute to a more thorough understanding of theatrical genres of the period
Macbeth by William Shakespeare( Book )

36 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Shakespeare's greatest, but also bloodiest tragedies, was written around 1605/06. Many have seen the story of Macbeth's murder and usurpation of the legitimate Scottish King Duncan as having obvious connection to contemporary issues regarding King James I (James VI of Scotland), and the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. King James was particularly fascinated with witchcraft, so the appearance of the witches chanting "Fair is foul, and foul is fair" at the opening of the play seemed particularly topical, as was Macbeth's betrayal of Banquo, from whom James claimed direct descent. However, the play is clearly far more than a piece of royal entertainment. It is also a fast-moving and dramatically satisfying piece of theatre. Macbeth's existential struggle between loyalty to his King and his "Vaulting ambition" is fascinating to watch, as his is struggle with Lady Macbeth, and her own terrifying refusal of her maternal role. The play shows an intensification of Shakespeare's interest in mothers and their effect upon ruling masculinity, and also contains some of the most memorable speeches in the entire canon, including Macbeth's reflections that ultimately life "is a tale / Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, / Signifying nothing."
