9780719078989: The Troublesome Reign of John, King of England: By George Peele (Revels Plays MUP)

Forker's critical edition fills the need for a fully annotated, historically contextualized and modernized text of the most important Elizabethan chronicle play apart from Shakespeare and Marlowe's Edward II.

Now attributed definitely to George Peele, this drama helped to establish a major theatrical genre, raising contemporary political and religious issues through the dramatization of medieval history in a compelling and popular fashion. A major source for Shakespeare, it throws new light on the bard's adaptation of earlier drama and helps to illustrate his working methods.

With the full introduction and generous notes this Revels Plays edition will be the first port of call for students and enthusiasts of Elizabethan and Early Modern drama.

About the Author:


Charles R. Forker is Professor of English Emeritus at Indiana University, Bloomington.

Review:


"Meticulously documented and annotated, Forker's edition is full of riches, and makes a notable addition to scholarship, not just on this play, but on the Elizabethan history play in general.'" -- Paul Dean, English Studies, Vol. 94, No. 4


"A welcome and much needed reconsideration . . . Forker's edition of The Troublesome Reign represents a landmark study on the play, on Peele, and on Queen's Men dramaturgy. It constitutes essential reading for any academic who is researching or teaching in these areas: either those already familiar with the play's past editions and critical history or those just beginning their study." -- Karen Obere, Early Theatre, 16.1 (2013)
