Edwards, Richard, King, Ros (ed.) (2001) The works of Richard Edwards: politics, poetry and performance in sixteenth-century England, Manchester, UK; New York, USA, Manchester University Press, 288pp. (The Revels Plays Companion Library).

Record type: Book


This book contains fully annotated critical editions of the surviving work of one of the most influential poets and dramatists writing in England before Shakespeare. Ros King rewrites the history of pre-Shakespearean drama, illustrating new approaches to 16th-century prosody, and to the modernization of dramatic poetry. King also re-evaluates the public role of theater and poetry during a turbulent period in English history. The book includes some of Edwards' never before printed and some newly ascribed poems, along with a number of original musical settings.
