This is the second volume in the Cambridge edition of the works of John Webster, containing The Devil's Law-Case, A Cure for a Cuckold, and Appius and Virginia. This critical edition preserves the original spelling; incorporates t he most recent editorial scholarship, including valuable information on Webster's share in the collaborative plays; and employs new critical methods and textual theory. In particular, the edition integrates theatrical aspects of the plays with their bibliographical and literary features in a way not previously attempted in a scholarly edition of a Jacobean dramatist.
