Ford wrote darkly about sexual and political passion, despair, thwarted ambition, and incest. This selection also shows his ability to portray the poignancy of love as well as write entertaining comedy and create convincing roles for women. His Annabella, Hippolita, Penthea, Calantha, and Katherine Gordon rank among the most dramatically powerful female characters on the post-Shakespearean stage. Setting Ford's earliest surviving independently-written play, The Lover's Melancholy, alongside his three best known works, this edition includes an introduction with sections on each play addressing gender issues, modern relevance, and staging possibilities. Under the General Editorship of Michael Cordner of the University of York, the texts of the plays have been newly edited and are presented with modernized spelling and punctuation, supplemented by detailed annotation.

Review:

"Lomax and Oxford are to be conreatulated, as several of these plays have been unavailable, and they are fine contributions.... The texts are clear and carefully done. Spelling and punctuation have been modernized, and the editor provides a good, brief introduction to each of the plays, a chronology of Ford's life, and a glossary."--Choice "Lomax and Oxford are to be conreatulated, as several of these plays have been unavailable, and they are fine contributions....
