Excerpt from The Golden and Silver Ages: Two Plays
It is only necessary to say a few words, by way of preface to the following plays.
Heywood wrote four dramas connected in subject and founded upon the mythology of the ancients; viz.: -
1. "The Golden Age," ... which came from the press in 1611, 4to;
2. "The Silver Age," which came from the press in 1613, 4to;
3. "The Brazen Age," which also came from the press in 1613, 4to.; and
4. "The Iron Age," which did not come from the press until 1632, 4to.
The two first are comprised in our present volume; and, as none of them were reprinted, these have been the sole copies consulted, in our re-impression. All have the name of the author upon the title-page.
The three first probably were in existence when "The Silver Age" appeared; but "The Iron Age" seems to have been of later composition, and to have been called for by the success of its predecessors.
