Digital Beaumont & Fletcher is a collaborative, open-access editorial project that aims to make the rarely edited—and, as a result, rarely taught—plays in the “Beaumont and Fletcher” canon accessible to student readers and freely available online for classroom use. All texts are prepared by undergraduate and graduate students.  

The base text for these editions is the distinctive copy of Comedies and Tragedies Written by Francis Beavmont And Iohn Fletcher Gentlemen (1647) in Penn State University’s Eberly Family Special Collections Library. The copy preserves evidence of ownership from as early as 1703 and includes three plays with early handwritten notes, suggesting that the book might have been used to facilitate performance in the late seventeenth century. The whole volume is fully digitized
