A game at chess, 1624
Published for the Malone Society by Oxford University Press, 1990 - Drama - 119 pages
This is a new edition of Thomas Middleton's A Game at Chess, a highly popular 1624 political drama that was closed by the government for its irreverent satire on contemporary court and international personalities. Throughout the years there have been many versions of the play, posing complex and thought-provoking problems for students and scholars of Renaissance drama. The Malone edition is a new diplomatic text of Middleton's autograph manuscript, adding much important evidence to the debate about Middleton's contribution to Shakespeare's plays.
