About the Author

Jesse M. Lander is an Associate Professor of English at the University of Notre Dame. He is the author of Inventing Polemic: Religion, Print, and Literary Culture in Early Modern England (2006). In addition to editing Macbeth (New York, 2007) for the Barnes & Noble Shakespeare, he was textual editor for 1 Henry IV in the third edition of The Norton Shakespeare (New York, 2015). Most recently, he joined Zachary Lesser and Heidi Brayman to edit a collection of essays entitled The Book in History, The Book as History: New Intersections of the Material Text (New Haven, 2016). J.J.M. Tobin, Professor of English at the University of Massachusetts Boston, is a former Woodrow Wilson Fellow and Fulbright Scholar who has taught at Boston College, York University, in Toronto, and Boston State College. He has served as general editor of the ninevolume Evans Shakespeare Series (Boston, Mass., 2011), for which he edited Hamlet, and contributing editor to the second edition of The Riverside Shakespeare (Boston, Mass., 1997). He is the editor of The Complete English Poems of George Herbert (Harmondsworth, 1992, second edition 2001), and in addition to a number of notes and articles has published Shakespeare's Favorite Novel (Lanham, MD, 1984), dealing with the sources, chronology and texts of Shakespeare, Milton and other Renaissance writers.


This orphan, offbeat history play seldom makes it onto an undergraduate syllabus, but Lander and Tobin's introduction makes the case for a work of addled nostalgia, incompetent governance, and broad disillusionment whose time has come. Generous base-of-the-page textual notes keep readers from losing their way amid the twists and turns of the play's messy plot. * Studies in English Literature 1500 - 1900 *
