Review:

D.S. Brewer's thoughtful series ... takes into account, synthesizes and develops the various facts and theories advanced about particular plays over the last few decades. The introduction and notes are full, informative ... This edition contributes valuably to the reassessment of a crucial period. --Review of English Studies

Perhaps the most significant playwright of the early Tudor court ... a splendid feat of scholarship that sets each play in its literary and historical contexts ... helpful comments on staging possibilities ... From this admirable edition one gains a real sense of the richness and diversity of court culture in the period. --British Studies

A first-rate edition that substantially advances the cause of scholarship. Cumulatively, the series is performing an important service by providing us with fully annotated editions of Tudor humanists and playwrights in the original Tudor English, with glossaries and listing of textual variants and doubtful readings. --Comparative Drama
