This play is a celebration of London life and theatre in which Francis Beaumont's comic genius is given free rein. This edition presents an accurate modern-spelling text, with full historical and critical introduction and a detailed commentary. It also places "The Knight" in the contexts of Jacobean comedy and the work of the children's theatrical troupes. An appendix on the songs and a concern for details of production make this edition especially useful to actors and directors, as well as students of Renaissance drama.
