Product Description

Details

Sir David Lyndsay's A Satire of the Three Estates is the earliest complete Scottish play on record, dating from the middle of the sixteenth century.

John Corbett's SCOTNOTE study guide examines the historical background, explores the play's language and style, and gives a concise introduction to this key work in the Scottish theatrical tradition. These notes are suitable for senior school pupils and students at all levels.
