This edition of George Chapman's tragedy differs from all other modern editions in being based primarily on the Quarto of 1607 in preference to the much revised Quarto of 1641. N.S. Brooke believes that the earlier text gives a more certain indication of Chapman's intentions and he has supported that view in his introduction, where he presents a bibliographical and critical study of the play. The divergences between the texts of 1607 and 1641 are set out clearly in this volume, which includes the usual textual and critical apparatus found in the Revels series.
