About the Authors
  • This is the ninth volume in the definitive series of 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 six plays written by Fletcher and his collaborators, Philip Massinger and William Rowley. Each play is introduced by a discussion of the text and authorship, and is accompanied by detailed textual notes, a list of press-variants, emendations of accidentals and a historical collation. The plays are The Sea Voyage, The Double Marriage, The Prophetess, The Little French Lawyer, The Elder Brother and The Maid in the Mill.

    • Fredson Bowers died in 1991. R. Turner is the executive editor, but Bower's name is on publicity and on the front of the book, title page, etc.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "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." The Sixteenth Century Journal

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