Abstract

It was an excellent idea to include essays also on Marlowe and Jonson. For one thing, the papers on those authors show consistently that we know more about both of them than about Shakespeare, and also that, in different ways, their personalities are more strongly present in their dramatic works. The essays are just as good as those on Shakespeare. At the risk of being unfair to the other outstanding contributors, I should particularly like to single out the papers by Lisa Hopkins (on Marlowe) and Ian Donaldson (on Jonson). This is so rich a book, with so many matters that should be discussed by a reviewer, that I genuinely regret not being able to say more than I have. However, the best way to rectify this shortcoming is to recommend the book enthusiastically and unreservedly, and to express the hope that it will be widely read and bought.
