This revised edition of Arden of Faversham contains a completely re-written Introduction that brings the text up to date with the latest performance history, criticism and research and fresh insight into the context in which the play was written.

Disambiguation notice
Although it has long been suggested on impressionistic grounds that Shakespeare might have had something to do with Arden, recent stylistic and linguistic studies by Hugh Craig, MacDonald P. Jackson and others have demonstrated to a high degree of probability that Shakespeare is responsible not for the entire play but for Act III (or in through-scene terms, scenes 4 to 9).
