Alan Shepard, Renaissance Quarterly "Overall, Bowers' authoritative editions of the Beaumont and Fletcher canon provide a much-needed service for the small but ever diligent body of Beaumont anf Fletcher scholars. One is immediately impressed with the years of research and cross-reference required to amass such a complete cataloging of textual variants, emendations, and authorial collaborations."
