John Pikeryng's Horestes is a play of importance in the development of Elizabethan drama, but to date it remains generally unavailable to interested students. This thesis is a preparation for an edition of the play which will permit further detailed studies of the play's significance. All available materials related to the historical and textual problems of the play have been examined and conclusions about the authorial controversy and source relationships have been drawn. Chapter IV provides the reader with an assessment of the play as drama and its place in Elizabethan dramatic history.
