520 While Shakespeare's popularity has continued to grow, so
has the attention paid to the work of his contemporaries.
The contributors to this Companion introduce the
distinctive drama of these playwrights, from the court
comedies of John Lyly to the works of Richard Brome in the
Caroline era. With chapters on a wide range of familiar
and lesser-known dramatists, including Thomas Kyd,
Christopher Marlowe, Ben Jonson, John Webster, Thomas
Middleton and John Ford, this book devotes particular
attention to their personal and professional relationships,
occupational rivalries and collaborations. Overturning the
popular misconception that Shakespeare wrote in isolation,
it offers a new perspective on the most impressive body of
drama in the history of the English stage.
