Edward Greene, Goldsmith; William Marston, Apprentice; and Eastward Ho!
Keywords:John Marston, Eastward Ho!, collaboration, authorship, biography
This essay presents new information about the family of John Marston the dramatist. I review this material in relation to the work of Suzanne Gossett and W. David Kay, the two editors of Eastward Ho! for The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Ben Jonson. My article explores how our knowledge of a writer’s personal relationships may affect our understanding of that writer’s contribution to a collaborative enterprise.
