Revels Plays MUP

  • The New Inn is one of the most neglected of Jonson's plays which is now finding a new and appreciative audience
  • May be read, according to this Editor's introduction, as a tribute to Shakespeare, and as a belated recognition that the fantasies of romance contain profound truths
  • The spelling has been modernised and the text updated and corrected for this paperback edition
  • There is also a critical introduction, helpful appendices and a commentary which explains difficult or significant passages within the play
