The atheist's tragedy; or, The honest man's revenge by Cyril Tourneur( Book )

20 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by Cyril Tourneur and first published in 1611, "The Atheist's Tragedy, or the Honest Man's Revenge" is a classic Jacobean era revenge play. In this drama we find the story of D'Amville, a wealthy French nobleman and our titular atheist. D'Amville is a cynical, ruthless, and Machiavellian character who conspires to have his brother, the Baron Montferrers, killed and ruin his nephew, Charlemont, in order to gain the son's inheritance. With a complex three-level plot structure "The Atheist's Tragedy" would incite much critical analysis since its publication, specifically with regard to the plays place in the evolution of Jacobean tragedy and the revenge play. One can compare Tourneur's work here to "The Revenger's Tragedy," which some believe to actually be authored by Tourneur and not Thomas Middleton, as well as other revenge tragedies including Thomas Kyd's "The Spanish Tragedy," and George Chapman's "The Revenge of Bussy D'Ambois;" all instrumental works in the development of this form of drama

"The Complete Works of Shakespeare, now in its updated fourth edition, continues to present the text of Shakespeare as an enjoyable and fruitful experience for students and teachers alike. David Bevington, the current president of the Shakespeare Association of America, is widely recognized for his contributions to the field of Shakespearean scholarship. Throughout the anthology, all sections are introduced with a clarity specifically designed for classroom teaching. Important discussion issues are outlined, along with sources for each play and the stage history of performances. This updated version retains thoughtful commentaries on individual lines and phrases and provides stage directions so students can visualize the plays. Notable changes to this edition include the addition of The Two Noble Kinsmen, a more detailed examination of Troilus and Cressida, and A Funeral Elegy - a poem recently proposed with considerable authority as written by Shakespeare."--Jacket

6 editions published between 1961 and 1975 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new edition, Charles Forker provides the most complete and detailed edition of Edward II ever published."--BOOK JACKET. "The introduction contains a fresh analysis of the first quarto (including new evidence of its original dating) and a reconsideration of the play's complex relation to the Shakespearean histories that preceded and followed it. Charles Forker offers a fascinating and far-reaching discussion of Marlowe's use of sources, and presents a new argument for the drama's five-act structure. He delves into the conflicting and controversial opinions concerning the genre and sexual politics of the play, and also includes the fullest record of the stage history ever assembled."--BOOK JACKET. "With meticulous scholarship, Forker has collated some forty-six editions (including the important, rare, and usually ignored editions of Broughton and Oxberry in 1818). The appendices provide substantive variants from the Broughton and Oxberry texts as well as generous extracts from the sources. This edition will stand as the definitive scholarly text for Marlowe's most provocative play for years to come."--BOOK JACKET
