Here are the plays that paved the way to the Renaissance and Shakespeare. In John Gassners extensively annotated collection, the plays regain their timeless appeal and display their truly international character and influence.

Medieval and Tudor Drama remains the indispensable chronicle of a dramatic heritage - the classical plays of Hrotsvitha, folk and ritual drama, the passion play, the great mortality play Everyman, the Interlude, Tudor comedies Ralph Roister Doister and Gammer Gurtons Needle, and the most famous of Tudor tragedies, Gorboduc.

Mr. Gassners introductions and notes tell a tale of excellence and evolution too easily forgotten. The texts have been modernized for todays readers and those composed in Latin have been translated into English.
