The Country Captain Summary

The Country Captain by William Cavendish,Duke of Newcastle

This is the first modern edition of Cavendish's comedy from the Harleian MS since A. H. Bullen included it in his A Collection of Old English Plays (1882-5). The introduction to the old-spelling edition presents new material about the manuscript's provenance and composition as well as about the play's history. It makes an important contribution to the recent revival of interest in Cavendish's life and works.
