Philaster is a tragicomedy by Beaumont and Fletcher which has much in common with Shakespeare's late plays such as The Winter's Tale.
Set in a fictionalised Sicily, it has the complex plot of love,
disguise and the threat of death much loved by early modern

This edition provides an authoritative, modernised text by a leading
scholar with detailed on-page commentary notes giving readers a deeper
understanding of the play. The comprehensive, illustrated introduction
discusses Philaster from a performance perspective as well as
its relation to Shakespearean drama, and places it in its historical
and critical contexts.

The play is often taught on Shakespeare and Early Modern drama
courses but only now is such a detailed, modern edition available for
use by students and scholars. With its wealth of helpful and incisive
commentary, this is the finest edition of the play available.
