Review:

"An intelligent compilation of current knowledge and hypotheses in the field of Renaissance drama, it is a valuable corrective to existing handbooks...The ten essays cover a lot of ground with a minimum of duplication...Most readers will discover some fresh insights into the work of major dramatists."
- Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England, Michael Shapiro

"In its newly revised form, this work solidifies its status as the best single-volume introduction to the non-Shakespearean English drama of the later Elizabethan, Jacobean, and Caroline periods."
- Sixteenth Century Journal, Arnold W. Preussner, Truman State University
