Excerpt from British Drama: Ten Plays From the Middle of the Fourteenth Century to the End of the Nineteenth

This collection of plays has been prepared as a companion volume to the editors' British Poetry and Prose. In that anthology they deliberately excluded plays, be lieving that the development of British drama could not be illustrated even sketchily by a few examples, and that the inclusion of selected scenes was at best only a make shift.

The plays here presented have been carefully chosen to provide the student in a survey course, or in a course in types, with an adequate introduction to the history of British drama. Supplemented by the plays of Shakespeare that are ordinarily read in an introductory course, this collection will supply the student with worthy and interesting specimens of the chief types of British drama chosen from the most out standing periods.
