The Spanish tragedy by Thomas Kyd( Book )

368 editions published between 1592 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 4,558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Spanish Tragedy was well known to sixteenth-century audiences, and its central elements--a play-within-a-play and a ghost bent on revenge--are widely believed to have influenced Shakespeare's Hamlet. This volume includes a generous selection of supporting materials, among them Kyd's likely sources (Virgil, Jacques Yver, and the anonymous "The Earl of Leicester Betrays His Own Servant"), Thomas Nashe's satiric criticism of Kyd, Michel de Montaigne and Francis Bacon on revenge, and "The Ballad of The Spanish Tragedy," which suggests the play's initial reception. "Criticism" is thematically organized to provide readers with a clear sense of the play's major themes. Contributors include Michael Hattaway, Jonas A. Barish, Donna B. Hamilton, G.K. Hunter, Lorna Hutson, Molly Smith, J.R. Mulryne, T. McAlindon, and Andrew Sofer. -- Publisher website
