Originally published in 1922, this book gives an account of the life and dramatic works of the now little known and less studied Restoration playwright, John Crowne.

The study consists of three parts. In the first, the author has traced the life of Crowne more minutely than has hitherto been attempted. In the second discusses Crowne's plays' the date of production and publication, the circumstances connected with the writing, the sources, and the manner in which they are used. Finally, the third part is a critical summary of Crowne's tragedies and comedies and an estimate of his importance as a playwright.

Table of Contents

1. The Life of John Crowne. 2. Historical Discussion of the Plays. 3. Critical Summary.
