Thomas Middleton: The Collected Works -  MacDonald P. Jackson (Editor),  John Jowett (Editor),  John Lavagnino,  V. Wayne, Gary Taylor, Thomas Middleton

The Wisdom of Solomon...Ch.1: The editor gleefully quotes the worst couplets from this poem in his Introduction and points out that it has largely been neglected by previous scholars and critics. On the other hand, not many people get their teenage efforts published at all and it's certainly better than I could do, even in middle-age...so far so bland.
