Summary: The most extenisve new collection in this field published in more than three decades, English Renaissance Drama: A Norton Anthology surveys the astonishing, and astonishingly varied, dramatic works written and performed in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. Popular in their own time, the 27 plays included here--by Christopher Marlowe, Ben Jonson, John Webster, Thomas Middleton, among many others--reveal why these playwrights' achievements, like Shakespeare's, deserve morereading, teaching, and performing afresh in our time. Edited by a team of exceptional scholars and teachers, this anthology opens an extraordinary tradition in drama to new readers and audiences.
