"The true Duke of Genoa has lost his throne to the usurper Pietro. The Duke returns to court in disguise in order to expose the corruption and regain his rightful office. Resonating with echoes of Measure for Measure and Hamlet, Marston's tragicomedy is a fabulous study of courtly intrigue, betrayal and treachery."--Jacket

The play tells the story of Duke Hercules, who disguises himself as a flattering courtier, the Fawn, in order to infiltrate the court of Duke Gonzago and observe the behaviour of his son Tiberio, who has been sent to Gonzago as an ambassador. In the process, Hercules observes the lechery of Gonzago's courtiers, who are all embroiled in seedy sexual adventures, and the vanity and stupidity of Gonzago himself, who is a pompous old windbag. At the play's conclusion, Hercules holds a symbolic Court of Cupid, in which all the foolish courtiers are arrested for their crimes against love and good sense
