The two noble kinsmen edited from the quarto of 1634

Considered a Jacobean tragicomedy, The Two Noble Kinsmen was first published in 1634 and is commonly attributed to William Shakespeare and John Fletcher, a contemporary playwright. Inspired by Chaucer's "The Knight's Tale" from his The Canterbury Tales, the play's first scenes of Acts I, III and V are certain to have been written by Shakespeare. Interestingly, The Two Noble Kinsmen is the only one of Shakespeare's plays that has never been adapted for film or television.

  • ""Since the late twentieth century, when scholarly attention began to focus on sexuality, collaboration and Shakespeare's late plays, The Two Noble Kinsmen has become an essential script. Turner and Tatspaugh's edition presents a strong case for taking the play more seriously now than ever before. A lively introduction discusses Shakespeare's craftsmanship in adapting a medieval tale for the Jacobean stage, the extent of co-authorship with John Fletcher, the rhetorical complexity of Shakespeare's late style, the themes of sexuality and friendship, and contemporary critical responses to the play. In addition to presenting a detailed history of performance, the edition calls attention to productions that have demonstrated the play's theatrical vitality and solved - or failed to solve - difficulties inherent in the text. Bringing the textual history completely up to date, the edition reflects renewed interest in The Two Noble Kinsmen, confirming it as a play for today.""
  • "This tragicomedy is an adaptation of Chaucer's Knight's Tale. Palamon and Arcite are kinsmen fighting for Creon of Thebes against the rulers of Athens, Theseus and Hippolyta. The two cousins and friends are captured and imprisoned. They are both smitten with the Athenian princess Emilia and their friendship turns to bitter rivalry. The play has comic sub-plots involving the besotted jailer's daughter, yokels performing Morris dancing, and preposterous disguises."
  • ""A Jacobean tragicomedy in which the plot is based on 'The Knight's Tale' in Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. The play introduces typical aspects of knighthood such as courtly love and ethical dilemmas" --Provided by publisher."@en
