Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price Francis Beaumont's The Knight of the Burning .

Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price Francis Beaumont's The Knight of the Burning Pestle is a five-act satire on chivalric romances, generally considered the earliest whole parody (or pastiche) play in English. The play's structure is that of a play within a play. The intended performance of The London Merchant - the tale of an apprentice's efforts to win the hand of his master's daughter - is interrupted by a request from the audience to stage the story of a heroic grocer who kills a lion with a pestle.

Published June 2002 by Nick Hern Books.

The Knight of the Burning Pestle is a play in five acts by Francis Beaumont, first performed at Blackfriars Theatre in 1607 and published in a quarto in 1613. It is the earliest whole parody (or pastiche) play in English. The play is a satire on chivalric romances in general, similar to Don Quixote, and a parody of Thomas Heywood's The Four Prentices of London and Thomas Dekker's The Shoemaker's Holiday. It breaks the fourth wall from its outset.

Francis Beaumont, John Fletcher You can read The Knight of the Burning Pestle by Francis Beaumont, John Fletcher in our library for absolutely free. Read various fiction books with us in our e-reader.

Francis Beaumont was born in 1584 near the small Leicestershire village of Thringstone. His solo playwriting career was limited. Apart from his poetry there were only two; The Knight of the Burning Pestle was first performed by the Children of the Blackfriars company in 1607. Unfortunately precise records of much of his short life do not exist. The first date we can give for his education is at age 13 when he begins at Broadgates Hall (now Pembroke College, Oxford). The audience however was distinctly unimpressed.

A burlesque of knight errantry and a parody of Heywood’s Four Prentice’s of London from the English Elizabethan dramatist.

Had to read it for a British Renaissance Literature Class. Not a bad book and quite entertaining, but definitely one of those books I wouldn't have found on my own.

I would put it at a mixture between Shakespeare and Chaucer for those looking to read it.

It's a pretty good play but don't bother with this edition. Someone seems to have scanned a library copy and uploaded it to the Kindle system without cleaning it up at all. The scan was just terrible. So you get page headers in the middle of the text, interrupting reading on every page. Lines are broken at arbitrary places. Page numbers randomly inserted into the text. There are lots of typos where the OCR got things wrong. Generally, not readable, much less enjoyable. Example (chosen from a random page)

Act I Sc.ii.^The Knight of the
I have a double gelding, colored bay, 120

Luce. T am satisfied;

I kid you not. Again, highly recommended to choose another edition.

This was a book I needed for a class - it has some funny moments, but on the whole "not my cup of tea"

This book is on the required reading list for my English Renaissance class I am taking for this semester. Amazon is the best place to order books from.

Tracie O'Keefe and Katrina Fox tell it like it is. They say that there is no such thing as a sex-change. Transsexuals change their bodies to align with their minds and spirits. Speaking as a woman of transsexual experience, this is one of the best books on the suject which I have ever read.
