Description

This is the seventh volume in a ten-volume series of the critical old-spelling texts of the plays in the Beaumont and Fletcher canon, in which the texts are established on modern bibliographical principles. This volume contains the texts of six plays by Fletcher but two, Henry VIII and The Two Noble Kinsmen, include the collaborative efforts of Shakespeare. Each play is introduced by a discussion of the text, has variant readings in footnotes, and is followed by full textual notes and lists of press-variants, emendations of accidentals and historical collations.show more

Review quote

..".these volumes...will survive for a long time as a monument to Bower's influential ideas about the critical text." Alan Shepard, Renaissance Quarterly .,."these volumes...will survive for a long time as a monument to Bower's influential ideas about the critical text." 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."
