English Drama (Chadwyck-Healey version)

English Verse Drama contains more than 2,000 works by around 450 named authors and approximately 230 anonymous works, from the Shrewsbury Fragments of the late thirteenth century to the end of the nineteenth century. The database contains works acted on or intended for the stage that are either wholly or predominantly in verse. Masques, entertainments, translations and adaptations are included, along with certain closet dramas omitted from The English Poetry Full-Text Database.

The entire text of each verse drama is included. Any accompanying text written by the playwright and forming an integral part of the work, such as epigraphs, dramatis personae and notes, is generally also included, along with commendatory and prefatory poems by both the playwright and others.
