KIRKUS REVIEW

One of the four great collections of medieval miracle plays is here made available for scholars, drama, history and religion students, in an acting edition. Middle English and Latin (the stage directions) are translated; two of the plays have been completed; omissions noted; each of the four sections have notes for the producer. There is an introduction which gives the history of the Wakefield (Towneley)cycle, their productions, the music, etc., etc. Valuable in specific areas.
