Thomas Legge: The Complete Plays

Volume I: Richardus Tertius- Volume II: Solymitana Clades (The Destruction of Jerusalem)- with a Translation and Commentary


Dana F. Sutton

This is a critical edition of the complete plays of a very important Elizabethan University playwright, together with introductions, English translations, and textual commentaries. Legge was the father of the Tudor Chronicle play, and his Richardus Tertius was probably employed as a source for Shakespeare's Richard III.
