By Robert Daborne

Paperback £10.99£8.79

A Jacobean tragicomedy from 1617, about a shepherd who seeks redress for a miscarriage of justice.

When his daughter Urania is deserted by her noble husband, Gisbert, the 'Poor Man' of the title, leaves his rural life in pursuit of justice. However, the urban society he discovers is rife with political and sexual corruption, which can only be cured by the restoration of the rightful king.

This edition of Robert Daborne's play The Poor Man's Comfort, in the Globe Quarto series co-published with Shakespeare's Globe to mark the rediscovery of forgotten plays by Shakespeare's contemporaries, is edited by Jane Kingsley-Smith.
