Bussy d'Ambois by George Chapman
Book DescriptionRevels stuff...|This Edition of George Chapman's tragedy differs from all other modern editions in being primarily based 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 this view in an introduction and by a bibliographical and critical study of the play. The divergence 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.

Books By Author George Chapman
Chapman's Homeric Hymns and Other Homerica, Paperback (April 2008)
Presents the original text of the translation of the Homeric hymns. This title also includes epigrams and poems attributed to Homer and known as "The Lesser Homerica," as well as his famous "The Battle of Frogs and Mice."
Eastward Ho!, Paperback (April 2002)
Featuring larger-than-life characters, this play sees Touchstone, a London goldsmith, preparing to marry off his two daughters. Touchstone's two apprentices lead the wooing until the rakish fop Sir Petronel Flash arrives on the scene. This is a comedy of true love triumphing over deception.
Chapman's Homer, Paperback (November 2000)
Presents the text of Chapman's translation of the "Odyssey" (1614-15), making only a small number of modifications to punctuation and wording where they might confuse the modern reader. This book also examines Chapman's "fine touch" in translating "the warm and human sense of comedy" in the "Odyssey".
Iliad and the Odyssey, Paperback (July 2000)» View all books by George Chapman
Homer bidding farewell to his wife, Odysseus bound to the mast, Penelope at the loom, Achilles dragging Hector's body round the walls of Troy - scenes from Homer have been portrayed in every generation. Chapman's translations are argued to be two of the liveliest and readable.
