In 2007 the holy grail of all things Middleton was revealed. The Complete Works of Thomas Middleton, edited by Gary Taylor and John Lavagnino, includes all the works of Middleton collected in a single volume for the first time, creating the kind of resource the works Shakespeare have long enjoyed. Along with its companion, Thomas Middleton and Early Modern Textual Culture, the massive undertaking works to resurrect the reputation of an undeservedly obscure master. As an overview of Middleton’s rich and varied career and the times in which he wrote in, it’s unprecedented; however, I’ll be focusing on writings before Taylor and Lavagnino’s opus, since that source is so conveniently concentrated for anyone who seeks it out.
