Summary
"One of five satiric city comedies that the young playwright Thomas Middleton wrote for the boy players of St. Paul's Catherdral sometime before 1607, Michaelmas Term is set in a vividly detailed, realistic urban milieu at the start of London's social season. The play comes alive through the central contest between Ephestian Quomodo, an ambitious, land-hungry city merchant, and Richard Easy, a naive land-owning gallant just arrived in the city. Easy is soon deep in dept and his struggle to recoup his losses and reclaim his land from Quomodo takes place against a sharply drawn set of London types - Quomodo's socially and sexually ambitious wife and daughter, the Scottish upstart Andrew Lethe and his mistress the Country Wench eager to exchange her virginity for an elegant new wardrobe." "This edition, newly collated and edited, features complete explanations of the play's often bawdy exchanges and the complex stage action of the gulling and secondary plots. It will be invaluable for advanced students of the Middleton canon as well as all those interested in early modern London and its vibrant theatrical culture, especially the tradition of boy choristers as professional actors."--BOOK JACKET
