Edward Phillips, in Theatrum Poetarum (1675) 2:113.



John Marston, a Tragic and Comic Writer, not of the meanest Ranck among our English Dramatics. His comedies are the Dutch Courtisan, the Fawn, What you will; His Tragedies Antonio and Melida, the Insatiate Countess, besides the Malecontent a Tragy Comedy; the Faithful Sheapheard a Pastoral.
