This edition of Eastward Ho! is the most authoritative and reliable to date. It has a text more accurate than any other and an extensive introduction that examines the relationship between the three authors and the problem of their collaboration. R. W. Van Fossen takes a fresh look at the question of the printing of the first quarto, provides a full stage history, and, most important, presents a critical interpretation of the play that takes account of its historical, social and theatrical context.

This collaborative masterpiece of hilarious city comedy was performed by the Children of the Revels at the Blackfriars playhouse in 1605. The story is of an allegorical simplicity that lends itself to satire of civic mores and traditions as well as to parody of the sentimental, idealising London comedy presented at the amphitheatres in the suburbs: Goldsmith Touchstone, an upright London citizen, has one modest and one ambitious daughter, one righteous and one disreputable apprentice; virtue is rewarded, ruthlessness comes to grief - and receives a drenching in the muddy Thames. The introduction to this edition discusses various methods of establishing authorship and highlights the irony of the collaborators' comic vision of contemporary London life.
