Description

Product Description

The most extensive 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 reading, 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.

English Renaissance Drama... Oh how I shudder when I hear those words together. I had to get this anthology of plays for a required class and was not particularly excited to curl up with this heavy tomb and read plays from this time period. Apart from Shakespeare, I have not had much exposure to Renaissance Drama. I was under the impression that reading plays by Middleton, Marlowe and Jonson would be like watching Hollywood "B" movies in comparison to the Shakespeare plays we''re all so familiar with. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that not only are these plays just as good as some of Shakespeare''s best, but that they''re entertaining and enjoyable. I acknowledge the importance of studying these plays, and now wonder why so many modern literary critics get so hung up on The Bard''s work when other authors published work that is just as (if not more) compelling.
In addition to the plays, this edition has excellent introductions and annotations in the text to make the works approachable.
My one complaint is that the spine on my book is not holding up particularly well as I cart it around in my backpack, and this book is probably meant to live on a shelf in hard cover.

This book is the perfect anthology for someone who is studying or interested in English Renaissance drama. The selected plays are very enjoyable to read and the many notes are great in helping the reader better comprehend the works. The only problem with the book is the fact that it uses extremely lightweight paper, making it difficult to write one''s own notes without damaging the print.

I bought this book for a class on Shakespeare''s contemporaries and have enjoyed reading many of the plays in this book including Volpone, The Alchemist, Dr. Faustus, The Duchess of Malfi and The Changeling. The editors have done a great job of helping with the outdated language by giving translations and footnotes that help the reader understand what the playwright wrote and meant. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who wants to know what other plays were like during Shakespeare''s time.

Many of the important plays of Shakespeare''s contemporaries are included in this excellent collection. In other editions of these plays, the reader is left to his or her own devices, but this edition has thorough notes and introductions of the type one usually only sees in Shakespeare collections. Plays that one has often read about, but not actually read, such as Kyd''s The Spanish Tragedy, become wonderfully accessible in this superb edition.

Throughout my semester so far I have really enjoyed this book. However, I was quite disappointed after paying close to $200 and receiving a book which had about 100+ crumpled pages and a crumpled cover. I knew it was coming to me "used", but I didn''t think it would look like it did for the money I spent. But, I try not to let it take away from the fact that there are so many great authors in this anthology. I am currently reading the works of Middleton, Marlowe and Webster, but I plan to read so many more this summer. I highly recommend this!
