Produktbeschreibung
Philaster is a tragicomedy by Beaumont and Fletcher which has much in common with Shakespeare's late plays such as The Winter's Tale.
Set in a fictionalised Sicily, it has the complex plot of love,
disguise and the threat of death much loved by early modern
theatre-goers.

This edition provides an authoritative, modernised text by a leading
scholar with detailed on-page commentary notes giving readers a deeper
understanding of the play. The comprehensive, illustrated introduction
discusses Philaster from a performance perspective as well as
its relation to Shakespearean drama, and places it in its historical
and critical contexts.

The play is often taught on Shakespeare and Early Modern drama
courses but only now is such a detailed, modern edition available for
use by students and scholars. With its wealth of helpful and incisive
commentary, this is the finest edition of the play available.

The Arden Early Modern Drama series accompanies and complements the
Arden Shakespeare Third Series, offering editions of non-Shakespearean
Renaissance drama and Restoration drama from the period 1500-1700.
Modelled on the Third Series in appearance and style Arden
Early Modern Drama editions will offer high-quality textual scholarship
and full annotation, together with an accessible, student-friendly
introduction.

Autorenporträt
Francis Beaumont (1584-1616) was an English playwright, mainly remembered for his successful collaboration with John Fletcher. Beaumont's most famous plays include The Woman Hater and The Knight of the Burning Pestle. He began to collaborate with Fletcher in about 1606-08, and their first success came in 1609 with Philaster, followed a year later by The Maid's Tragedy and A King and No King. Together, they wrote at least six plays; in a further seven or eight cases the attribution is probable but not certain.
