"This volume contains the four plays by Thomas Middleton which have most impressed the modern world: ""A Chaste Maid in Cheapside"" is the most complex amd effective of the city comedies; ""Women Beware Women"" and ""The Changeling"" (with William Rowley) are two of the most powerful Jacobean tragedies outside of Shakespeare -- studies in lust, power, violence, and self-delusive psychology; ""A Game at Chess"" was the single most popular play of the whole Shakespearean era, a satirical exposé of Jesuit plotting and Anglo-Spanish politics which played tp pacifist houses at the Globe until King James and his ministers banned it. The best-value collection available with the most officially up-to-date introduction; all the play texts are newly edited with richly informative annotation. "
