About this Item

This is the first volume to appear in the Cambridge edition of the works of John Webster. This critical edition preserves the original spelling of all the plays; incorporates the most recent editorial scholarship, including valuable information on Webster's share in the collaborative plays; and employs new critical methods and textual theory. In particular, the edition integrates theatrical aspects of the plays with their bibliographical and literary features in a way not previously attempted in a scholarly edition of a Jacobean dramatist. The edition presents all of Webster's plays (with the exception of those collaborative plays already published in the Cambridge editions of Dekker, and Beaumont and Fletcher) and provides a brief biography, an account of Webster canon, illustrations, and critical and theatrical history of eachplay. Edge slightly darklen for being on a shelf. Bookseller Inventory # a27510

The edition also presents previously unpublished material, such as a fragment of an otherwise lost play and a hitherto unknown poem, in addition to a brief biography of Webster, a history of the Webster canon, and each play's reception history.
