This book is an intriguing examination of authorship in early modern English drama.

This book is an intriguing examination of authorship in early modern English drama. Johnson examines some of the ways that authorship could be built not in opposition to the theater where plays were performed (as Ben Jonson wanted his plays to be remembered) but rather out of and with direct attention to the theatrical. She looks at the careers of four actor-authors and the ways each one builds his authorial reputation out of a theatrical or otherwise distinct from the (the This book is an intriguing examination of authorship in early modern English drama.

The Actor as Playwright provides an alternative to the debate between traditional and materialist readers of early modern dramatic authorship, arguing that both approaches are weakened by a reluctance to look outside the Shakespearean canon for evidence.

This book examines the influence of John Marston, typically seen as a minor figure among early modern dramatists .

This book examines the influence of John Marston, typically seen as a minor figure among early modern dramatists, on his colleague Ben Jonson. While Marston is usually famed more for his very public rivalry with Jonson than for the quality of his plays, this book argues that such a view of Marston seriously underestimates his importance to the theatre of his time. In it, the author contends that Marston's plays represent an experiment in a new kind of satiric drama, with origins in the humanist tradition of serio ludere.

Uncovering important links between acting and authorship in early modern England, Nora Johnson traces the careers of Robert Armin, Nathan Field, Anthony Munday and Thomas Heywood, actors strongly interested in marketing themselves as authors and celebrities. However, the authorship they imagined had little to do with modern ideas of control and ownership. Shakespeare's famous silence about his own work is one strategy among many available to writers for the stage. Johnson provides an alternative to the debate between traditional and materialist readers of dramatic authorship.
