Theatrical Provenance

The Admiral's Men began payments to William Haughton on "The Poor Man's Paradise" in August 1599 early in their fall season at the Rose; across the way on Maid Lane, the Chamberlain's Men were underway with their fall season at the newly opened Globe.



Probable Genre(s)

Comedy (?) (Harbage)



Possible Narrative and Dramatic Sources or Analogues

Wiggins, Catalogue (#1201) raises a connection with the Homilies on Luke and St. Jerome's use of "the phrase paradisus pauperis in reference to 'Abraham's bosom' in the biblical parable of Dives and Lazarus."



References to the Play

None known.


Critical Commentary

Greg II says that "[n]othing is known of this play" (#181, p. 205).


Wiggins, Catalogue (#1201) queries a couple of points. For one, he thinks it is "remotely possible" that the name "Thomas" is not a mistake for the familiar "William" Haughton. For another, he weighs whether the play offered "the biblical parable of Dives and Lazarus" or "some unlikely earthly paradise."



For What It's Worth

Knutson considers Henslowe's wording "for his Boocke" in the payment on 25 August 1599 to be a clue that the play was completed (p. 37, n.33).
