'Tis pity she's a whore by John Ford( Book )

241 editions published between 1633 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 3,115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Incest, adultery and revenge take centre stage in John Ford's dramatic account of the sublime and yet destructive power of human passions. Sympathetic yet unflinching in its exploration of sexuality and desire, 'Tis Pity She's a Whore promotes a radical type of pity which seems utterly modern to contemporary readers and audiences. Ford's dramatic originality is embodied in its heroine, Annabella, who defies conventions, domestic violence, and the obsessive and self-centred idealism of her brother and lover, Giovanni. As well as exploring its modernity, Sonia Massai offers an historically informed approach to the play, through which sexuality is viewed as a marker of personal identity, and as a potential threat to social order and the Renaissance ideals of civic and self-rule."--Page 4 of cover

The witch of Edmonton : a critical edition by William Rowley( Book )

48 editions published between 1658 and 2017 in English and German and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 19 April 1621, a woman named Elizabeth Sawyer was hanged at Tyburn. Her story was on the bookstalls within days and within weeks was adapted for the stage as The Witch of Edmonton. The devil stalks Edmonton in the shape of a large black dog and, just as Elizabeth Sawyer makes her demonic pact, the newlywed Frank Thorney enters into his own dark bargain in the shape of a second, bigamous marriage. Torn between sympathy for Sawyer and Thorney and a clear-eyed assessment of their crimes, the play was the finest and most nuanced treatment of witchcraft that the stage would see for centuries. Lucy Munro's introduction provides students and scholars with a detailed understanding of this complex play. - See more at: http://www.bloomsbury.com/us/the-witch-of-edmonton-9781904271529/#sthash.KWU7IGXY.dpuf

Ford wrote darkly about sexual and political passion, thwarted ambition, and incest. This selection of four plays also shows his ability to portray the poignancy of love as well as write entertaining comedy and create convincing roles for women. Setting Ford's earliest surviving independently written play, The Lover's Melancholy, alongside his three best-known works, The Broken Heart, 'Tis a Pity She's a Whore, and Perkin Warbeck, this edition includes an introduction with sections on each play, addressing gender issues, modern relevance, and staging possibilities. - Publisher
