Early Modern Drama


Electronic editions

  • EEBO: Early English Books Online Full-text of literary and historical classics originally published between 1475 and 1700. Digital images reflect the way the works appeared in their original printed editions.

Print editions

  • Using the Five College Libraries Catalog do an author search on a playwright's name to find works by him/her.
  • Interplay: an on-line index to plays in collections, anthologies and periodicals "Inter-Play is an online index to plays in collections, anthologies, and periodicals and in a variety of languages. Separately-published plays are not included. Inter-Play contains approximately 19,000 citations to plays, many of which are not included in the standard printed play indexes such as Ottemiller's Index to Plays in Collections or H. W. Wilson's Play Index. The sources indexed range from the late 19th century through the current year." The search interface is somewhat primitive and authors must be entered as last name, first name.
