Содержание:

Introduction, The Lover`s Melancholy, The Broken Heart, `Tis Pity She`s a Whore, Perkin Warbeck

Описание:

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 playshave been newly edited and are presented with modernized spelling and punctuation, supplemented by detailed annotation.
