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

13 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edward IV (1599) was printed no less than six times up to 1626, and was one of the best loved plays of the early modern period, but this edition is the first since the 1870s. Controversy surrounds every aspect of the play. Disputes over the ownership of the inn-yard playhouse in which it was first played erupted into violence during performances. The little known troop which first acted Edward IV used it to challenge the domination of the two principal companies. The play premiered at a moment when the representation of medieval history in any format was coming under the hostile scrutiny of the Elizabethan government
Thomas Heywood's theatre, 1599-1639 : locations, translations, and conflict by Richard Rowland( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this major reassessment of his subject, Richard Rowland restores Thomas Heywood-playwright, miscellanist and translator-to his rightful place in early modern theatre history. Rowland contextualizes and historicizes this important contemporary of Shakespeare, locating him on the geographic and cultural map of London through the business Heywood conducts in his writing. Arguing that Heywood's theatrical output deserves the same attention and study that has been directed towards Shakespeare, Jonson, and more recently Middleton, this book looks at three periods of Heywood's creativity: the end of the Elizabethan era and the beginning of the Jacobean, the mid 1620s, and the mid to late 1630s. By locating the works of those years precisely in the political and cultural conflicts to which they respond, Rowland initiates a major reassessment of the remarkable achievements of this playwright. Rowland also pays attention to Heywood in performance, seeing this writer as a jobbing playwright working in an industry that depended on making writing work. Finally, the author explores how Heywood participated in the civic life of London in his writings beyond the playhouse. Here Rowland examines pamphlets, translations, and the sequence of lord mayor's pageants that Heywood produced as the political crisis deepened. Offering close readings of Heywood that establish the range, quality and theatrical significance of the writing, Thomas Heywood's Theatre, 1599-1639 fits a fascinating piece into the emerging picture of the 'complete' early modern English theatre. -- Publisher
