Living in the shadow of the most brilliant period in English theater, many Jacobean and Caroline dramatists were deeply influenced by their famous Elizabethan predecessors, including Shakespeare and Johnson. Their writings, which offer as much diversity as those of their earlier cousins, deserve study. Covering the gamut of drama and comedy, and including historical and religious topics, the playwrights of the period, represented in the 26 profiles in this DLB volume, offer a rich tapestry of drama. Their work provides us with an entertaining and enlightening glimpse into the past. 26 entries include : Thomas Campion, Sir William Davenant, Robert Davenport, Nathan Field, Thomas Killigrew, John Marston, Thomas Middleton, Thomas Nabbes, William Rowley and John Webster.
