Shakespeare, Revenge Tragedy and Early Modern Law: Vindictive Justice (Early Modern Literature in History)

Literatur-Theorie & Interpretationen

This book, the first to trace revenge tragedy's evolving dialogue with early modern law, draws on changing laws of evidence, food riots, piracy, and debates over royal prerogative. By taking the genre's legal potential seriously, it opens up the radical critique embedded in the revenge tragedies of Kyd, Shakespeare, Marston, Chettle and Middleton.
