Books By Author David Bevington

Troublesome Reign of John, King of England by David Bevington Troublesome Reign of John, King of England, Paperback (June 2016)

A much needed, fully annotated and modernized text of a long neglected play used by Shakespeare as the principal basis of King John. Published anonymously in 1591, it can now be attributed definitively to Peele and ranks as the most important Elizabethan history play after Shakespeare and Marlowe's Edward II.

Lady's Trial by David Bevington Lady's Trial, Paperback (September 2015)

The first scholarly edition of a little-known play by a major Renaissance playwright, which interestingly reworks Othello.

Love's Metamorphosis by David Bevington Love's Metamorphosis, Paperback (June 2015)

Lyly's most elegantly structured play, newly edited from the quarto of 1601
