The Duchess of Malfi : By John Webster, Paperback / softback Book

The Duchess of Malfi : By John Webster Paperback / softback

Edited by John Brown

Part of the The Revels Plays series


More widely studied and more frequently performed than ever before, John Webster's The Duchess of Malfi is here presented in an improved, accessible and throughly up-to-date edition.

Starting with the authoritative Revels Plays edition of 1964, John Russell Brown has augmented the notes and collations, and casts new light on Webster's dramatic dialogue and on the stage action.

An entirely new introduction encompasses a stage history from its well-documented early performances right through to recent productions in the twenty first century.

The bibliography has also been expanded. Students, actors, directors, academics and theatre-goers will find here a reappraisal of Webster's artistry in the greatest age of English theatre. -- .
