Eastward Ho!


Ben Jonson & George Chapman & John Marston

Published by New Mermaid

Teeming with energy and larger than life characters, Eastward Ho! sees Touchstone, a London goldsmith, preparing to marry off his two daughters

Touchstone's two apprentices lead the wooing until the rakish fop Sir Petronel Flash arrives on the scene

A comedy of true love and virtue triumphing over social-climbing, deception and trickery

This is one of the New Mermaid series which offers modern spelling & fully-annotated editions of important English plays. Each volume includes a critical introduction, biography of the author, discussions of dates and sources, textual details, a bibliography, and information about the staging of the play
