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

190 editions published between 1633 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 4,395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Ford's tragedy, first printed in 1633, is the first major English play to take as its theme a subject still rarely handled: fulfilled incest between brother and sister. It is one of the most studied and performed of all plays of the period, and has been successfully adapted for film and radio. The Revels Plays edition by Derek Roper has been the standard scholarly text since it appeared in 1975. This new edition uses the same authoritative text, but with notes designed for modern undergraduate use. The substantial introduction has been completely rewritten to take account of the studies and new approaches of the last twenty years. It presents the play as an 'interrogative text', in which subversive meanings are inscribed within an apparently orthodox narrative; as a courageous treatment of forbidden love; and as an astonishing work of Baroque art

"This series presents students with a library of outstanding plays, many of which are otherwise unobtainable, or available only in out-of-date or unannotated editions. The texts are newly edited, with modernized spelling and punctuation where appropriate; and there are scholarly introductions and annotation."--BOOK JACKET.

This selection also shows his ability to portray the poignancy of love and to write entertaining comedy and create convincing roles for women. His Annabella, Hippolita, Penthea, Calantha, and Katherine Gordon rank among the most dramatically powerful female characters on the post-Shakespearian stage."--BOOK JACKET. "Setting Ford's earliest surviving independently-written play, The Lover's Melancholy, alongside his three best-known works, this edition includes an introduction, with sections on each play addressing gender issues, modern relevance, and staging possibilities."--BOOK JACKET
