University of Delaware Press, 2004 - Literary Collections - 291 pages
These essays by leading scholars of early modern attribution, editing, theater, and versification (including Andrew Gurr, Gary Taylor, and Brian Vickers) focus on questions of authorship, authority, and ownership in Marlowe, Peele, Shakespeare, Middleton, Webster and others. Some essays take MacDonald P.
