Eastward Ho!: Chapman, Jonson and Marston
Manchester University Press, Jun 12, 1999 - Drama - 238 pages
This edition of Eastward Ho! is the most authoritative and reliable to date. It has a text more accurate than any other and an extensive introduction that examines the relationship between the three authors and the problem of their collaboration. R. W. Van Fossen takes a fresh look at the question of the printing of the first quarto, provides a full stage history, and, most important, presents a critical interpretation of the play that takes account of its historical, social and theatrical context.
