Campaspe and Sappho and Phao: John Lyly (The Revels Plays) by John Lyly

This is the finest critical edition of the two earliest comedies written by John Lyly. The text of Sappho and Phao is based on a first edition that was never before recognized as such. The text of Campaspe has also been take from early editions. The substantial introductions and commentary notes give a new view of Lylys learning, style, wit and theatrical genius, along with the presentation of the battle of the sexes that offered such vital models for the early Shakespeare. The editors have worked to ensure that the two plays in this joint edition will compliment and illuminate each other. The plays are set in their historical, literary and theatrical context. With modernized spelling, explanations of difficult passages and extensive footnotes, this book will be a welcome addition for anyone interested in English Renaissance drama.
