Apologies for being quite late in thanking everyone for their answers to my question about Shakespeare/Jonson’s contributions to The Spanish Tragedy. As always, Shaksper is an amazing resource, allowing one to poll a stunningly knowledgeable community.

 

For what it’s worth, I find Todd Lidh’s argument quite compelling: that the Henslowe payments to Jonson were in fact for The First Part of Hieronimo (anonymous, published 1605), a prequel to The Spanish Tragedy that is apparently something of a sendup of its ensuing progenitor.

This work is extant. I’ve ordered a copy of the Cairncross edition.

 

Oh and apologies for the H8/More confusion. Not sure what was misfiring in my brain that morning . . . 

 

Thanks again to all,

Steve
