A Woman Killed with Kindness, Hardback Book


The most studied of Thomas Heywood's plays, A Woman Killed With Kindness explores the boundaries of marital punishment and the moral weight of mercy.

This major new edition of this startling domestic tragedy offers the standard, depth and range associated with all Arden editions.

The on-page commentary notes explain the language, references and staging issues posed by the text while the lengthy, illustrated introduction offers a lively overview of the play's historical, performance and critical contexts.

This is the ideal edition for study and performance.
