Excerpt from Publications of the University of Pennsylvania: Series in Philology and Literature, the Tragedie of Chabot Admirall of FranceThe neglect of our older dramatic writers is a commonplace of modern literary comment. Until recently the student who sought to know the contemporaries of Shakespeare, was forced to make their acquaintance through texts marred by the excisions, interpolations and modernizations of editors who, by the very act of editing, assumed a literary censorship and tyranny over the unhappy subjects of their labors. Modern scholarship is no longer content with such work. Of late Manly, Bond, Boaz, Breymann and Wagner have done much to remedy this conditon and have given us an accurate transcript of the writings of a number of the Elizabethans. Chief among the dramatists who have suffered from neglect is Chapman, for no satisfactory edition of his dramatic works has yet appeared. Through the labors of Gifford, Dyce, and others, the works of many of the older dramatists were collected and published during the earlier half of the last century, but it was not until 1873 that a similar service was attempted for Chapman. In this year a three volume edition, a reprint of the plays, edited by John Pearson, appeared; but, though commendable as an effort to reproduce the text of the quartos, it was incomplete and abounded in errors. A second collection of the plays, edited by R. H. Shepherd, appeared a year later, and included all the extant plays, either wholly or partly, by Chapman, and, in addition, several of unknown or doubtful authorship.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
