Inhaltsangabe: ?The Revenger's Tragedy? is an intense tragic burlesque. Its hero, Vindice, desires to avenge the death of his betrothed. Operating in disguises he provokes discord among his enemies so that they plot against each other. This play depicts a morally corrupt world where the desire for justice is contaminated by the obsession for revenge. The characters take pleasure in watching adultery, incest and murder. The play's chief moral spokesman, Vindice, is at the same time enamoured of and disgusted by, the luxury of the court
Inhaltsangabe: This edition of a famous Elizabethan tragedy has a new commentary on the text, an up-to-date discussion of the play on the stage and a new approach to the authorship question. The play covers social and political issues, and combines farcical elements with a satirical style. The "New Mermaids" series aims to present important play texts in a form that pays particular attention to theatrical elements, and that provides up-to-date critical introductions and commentary notes.
