These two volumes comprise one of the four extant Middle English cycles of mystery plays. A collection of unknown origin, N-Town contains forty-one plays, dramatizing divine history from Creation to Doomsday and illustrating ways of reading, supplementing, and altering biblical accounts.

Industry Reviews

`When the annals of modern academic publication are compiled, the Early English Text Society (EETS) will command a very special place. Because of the high standards of editing as well as the advancements in editing theory and newly available information, some recent EETS editions have distinguished themselves. Stephen Spector's edition of The N-Town Play is a case in point. ... His authoritative texts are totally reliable and his careful commentary helps to establish the historical context of the plays. ... this is a masterful volume, recommended for all academic libraries.' M.C. Riggio, Choice
