The Spanish tragedy by Thomas Kyd( Book )
109 editions published between 1603 and 2016 in English and German and held by 2,800 libraries worldwide
"Thomas Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy is an outstanding landmark of Elizabethan tragedy. It probably inspired Shakespeare to write Hamlet, as it contains a ghost, murders that demand revenge, and a hero that hesitates and contemplates suicide. As a revenge tragedy, it set up the salient features of a dramatic genre that would last decades. Its hero, the aged marshal of Spain Hieronimo, soon became the archetypal stage representation of grief, rhetorical passion and madness. Hieronomi's main antagonist, Lorenzo, is one of the first Machiavellian characters of English drama. This edition explores the play in relation to its historical context and contemporary Iberian dynastic policy. It also offers a fresh assessment of its stage history and presents for the first time an integrated text inviting a reading of the play as it was published both in 1592 and in 1602"--Back cover
The Spanish tragedy by Thomas Kyd( Book )
99 editions published between 1599 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,225 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
