Summary "The drama of the English Middle Ages is perennially popular with students and theatre audiences alike, and The Cambridge Companion to Medieval English Theatre has established itself as a standard guide to the field. This revised edition, containing three entirely new chapters, continues to provide an authoritative introduction and an up-to-date, illustrated guide to the mystery cycles, morality drama and saints' plays which flourished from the late fourteenth to the mid sixteenth centuries. A thoroughly revised reference section includes a guide to scholarship and criticism, an enlarged classified bibliography and a chronological table."--BOOK JACKET.
