The Dramatic Works of Thomas Dekker heftetEngelsk, 2009


The final volume of the Cambridge Dekker contains The Welsh Ambassador, The Noble Spanish Soldier, Lust's Dominion, The Sun's Darling, London's Tempe and Britannia's Honour. Professor Bowers's edition is recognized as a model critical old-spelling text, where the techniques of strong textual and bibliographical study have been methodically applied to one of the least accessible of the Elizabethan dramatists. The introductions to each play provide textual analyses that set out the circumstances of publication and transmission. The critical apparatus gives press variants derived from collations, editorial emendations to the copy-text and other textual notes.
