9780521033589: The Drama of John Marston: Critical Re-Visions

Celebrating the 400th anniversary of John Marston's debut as a professional playwright, this collection of critical essays on his work discovers, in the decentered, hilarious, but unsettling work of this idiosyncratic Renaissance dramatist, an uncannily postmodern voice. The qualities that estranged Marston from previous critical eras are precisely those that are now instantly accessible and this volume's essays, by leading scholars in the early modern field, explore the full extent of Marston's ambiguity toward politics, gender and the very medium he wrote for and in.
