Book Description

First published in 1936, The Jacobean Drama is a brilliant interpretation of the drama written between the last years of Elizabeth I and the first years of Charles I.  Professor Una Mary Ellis-Fermor’s  book traces the evolution of thought and mood from the end of Marlowe’s career, through the works of Ben Jonson, Marston, Chapman, Middleton, Tourneur, Webster, Greville, Beaumont and Fletcher, and Ford. The author then discusses a culminating phase in the plays of Shakespeare and the modifications of his successors. She finally looks into the Jacobean stage and in her Appendix considers the 'theatre war'.
