A Globe Quarto co-published with Shakespeare’s Globe marking their rediscoveries of forgotten plays by Shakespeare’s contemporaries.

A Jacobean tragicomedy from 1617. 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.

Edited by Jane Kingsley-Smith
