Nathan Field: The Actor-Playwright

Excerpt

The necessity for a study of Nathan Field, the actor-playwright, has developed because of the increasing tendency to attribute to him either the revision of plays or the composition of such portions of collaborative drama, 1613-19, as cannot be identified.

I wish to express my appreciation for the assistance given me in the preparation of this monograph by the various members of the staffs of Yale and Harvard libraries and of the British Museum. It is a pleasure to record my thanks to C. E. Simons, Record Searcher, Somerset House, London, for his suggestions of possible sources of new biographical material, and for his work in making transcriptions of documents. I am also indebted to various church officials for permission to search the records at St. Giles, Cripplegate; St. Giles-in-the-Fields; and Southwark Cathedral.

I desire to acknowledge the valuable aid of the late Professor Albert S. Cook in editing the first chapter of this work. To Professor Tucker Brooke I am indebted not only for rereading the manuscript in preparation for the press but also for the suggestion of the subject of this thesis and for guidance and encouragement in my investigation. To acknowledge my gratitude to him is but to voice a feeling shared by all who work under his direction.
