Author: WEBSTER JOHN
Format: PAPER COVER
Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

'Oh, that I were a man, or that I had power To execute my apprehended wishes, I would whip some with scorpions.' Seen as anarchic and amoral in their time, these four tragedies of murder and politics continue to resonate with their dark, horrific vision of humanity. Featuring strangulations, poisonings, stabbings and incest, the plays explore violence, transgression and destructive sexual jealousy, while also satirising the dangerous times in which they were written. This new edition illuminates Webster's and Ford's plays further by putting them in context with one another, highlighting the complexity of their morally ambiguous female protagonists. Edited with an introduction by Jane Kingsley-Smith
