Since no manuscript exists of Buchanan's (1506-1582) important Latin play on the story of John the Baptist, this critical edition is based on the published texts of London, 1577, and Frankfurt, 1578. The anonymous early translation, Tyrannicall-Government Anatomized , is also included. Berkowitz's extensive introduction challenges the standard interpretation of the play as a simple historical allegory or a dramatized political tract, placing it instead in the broad context of humanist drama. Includes a detailed listing of editions and translation of Baptistes . Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
