Michaelmas Term is one of five satiric city comedies that the young Thomas Middleton wrote for the boy players of St. Paul's Cathedral sometime before 1607. In its witty dialogue and complex action, the play offers an unusually cynical assessment of the displacement and alienation of life in the great metropolis of early modern London. This edition, newly collated and edited, features complete explanations of the play's often bawdy exchanges and the complex staging of secondary plots.
