Roaring Boys: Shakespeare's Rat Pack|
by Judith Cook
Sutton Publishing, 2006
Judith Cook has distilled an enormous amount of research
on Shakespeare and theatre in Elizabethan London into a
clear and readable account. Provides a good sketch of the
known facts not only of Shakespeare's life, but of all his
fellow playwrights, the University Wits, Marlowe and Jonson.
The emerging new plays are covered, as well as their reception,
the experience of theatre-going and day-to-day existence in
bustling Renaissance London, all the while holding the linear
narrative thread of Shakespeare in particular. Cook gives just
enough detail, without weighing the reader down. A great
introduction to all the playwrights and the playwriting environment,
and can be recommended as a valuable springboard before delving
into in-depth research with other books. It was a delightful read,
highly recommended for undergraduate students of English, theatre
majors, and the Renaissance reader.

Beyond the Spanish Tragedy:|
A Study of the Works of Thomas Kyd
by Lukas Erne
Manchester University Press, 2002
"In Lukas Erne's book, The Spanish Tragedy - the most popular
of all plays on the English Renaissance stage - receives the
extensive scholarly and critical treatment it deserves, including
a full reception and modern stage history. Yet as Erne shows,
Thomas Kyd is much more than the author of a single masterpiece.
Don Horatio (partly extant in The First Part of Hieronimo),
the lost early Hamlet, Soliman and Perseda, and Cornelia all
belong to what emerges in this study for the first time as
a coherent dramatic oeuvre." —Amazon.com
