Forker's critical edition fills the need for a fully annotated,
historically contextualised and modernised text of the most
important Elizabethan chronicle play apart from Shakespeare and
Marlowe's Edward II. Now attributed definitely to George Peele,
this drama helped to establish a major theatrical genre, raising
contemporary political and religious issues through the
dramatisation of medieval history in a compelling and popular
fashion. A major source for Shakespeare, it throws new light on the
bard's adaptation of earlier drama and helps to illustrate his
working methods. With the full introduction and generous notes this
Revels Plays edition will be the first port of call for students
and enthusiasts of Elizabethan and early modern drama. -- .
