This is the first book in more than thirty years on the playwright who is arguably Shakespeare's most important tragic predecessor. In Lukas Erne's book, The Spanish Tragedy - the most popular of all plays on the English Renaissance stage - receives the extensive scholarly and criticaltreatment it deserves, including a full reception and modern stage history. Yet as Erne shows, Thomas Kyd is much more than the author of a single masterpiece. Don Horatio (partly extant in The First Part of Hieronimo), the lost early Hamlet, Soliman and Perseda, and Cornelia all belong to whatemerges in this study for the first time as a coherent dramatic oeuvre.

The Spanish Tragedie Hieronimo is Mad Again 1587 By Thomas Kyd Containing the lamentable end of DON HORATIO, and BEL-IMPERIA: with the pittiful death of olde HIERONIMO. The Spanish Tragedy, or Hieronimo is Mad Again is an Elizabethan tragedy written by Thomas Kyd between 1582 and 1592. Highly popular and influential in its time, The Spanish Tragedy established a new genre in English theatre, the revenge play or revenge tragedy. Its plot contains several violent murders and includes as one of its characters a personification of Revenge. The Spanish Tragedy was often referred to (or parodied) in works written by other Elizabethan playwrights, including William Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, and Christopher Marlowe. Many elements of The Spanish Tragedy, such as the play-within-a-play used to trap a murderer and a ghost intent on vengeance, appear in Shakespeare's Hamlet. (Thomas Kyd is frequently proposed as the author of the hypothetical Ur-Hamlet that may have been one of Shakespeare's primary sources for Hamlet.)

The Spanish Tragedy was the first 'revenge tragedy' on the English Renaissance stage: but for its influence, major dramas including The Revenger's Tragedy, The Duchess of Malfi and even Hamlet would not exist as they do. It is thus a key text for the study of Renaissance drama and normally appears in introductory undergraduate courses on Renaissance drama and Shakespeare. Despite its initial smash-hit status, after the closing of the theatres in 1642 the play was only once performed in Britain before its gradual revival in the 20th century. Following its first professional performance in 1973, the play has come to be recognised as a Renaissance classic, receiving frequent performance. This volume will bring together its most insightful and influential modern scholars to produce an edition read both by experts in the field and lovers of Thomas Kyd's drama.

Thomas Kyd s Mystery Play

Thomas Kyd s Mystery Play

One of the most popular plays of the Elizabethan period, The Spanish Tragedy has long been accepted as the first major example of the revenge tragedy genre which enjoyed a great vogue in Tudor and Stuart England.

One of the most popular plays of the Elizabethan period, The Spanish Tragedy has long been accepted as the first major example of the revenge tragedy genre which enjoyed a great vogue in Tudor and Stuart England. However, in this first full-length study in English of the play, the author offers an original analysis of its mystery subtext. He shows how Kyd defines the play as a mystery by analogies between the large play and three plays-within-the-play, and then he discusses the ways in which the play is a mystery: as an allegory, as a prototypical detective story, and as a mystery ritual. This monograph not only expands our knowledge of Kyd's dramaturgy but it also broadens our understanding of the learned dimensions of Elizabethan popular drama.

Raymond Carr's succinct and elegant volume is recognised as the classic account of the war, 'brother against brother', which established the Franco regime in Spain. Carr focuses on the disparities in Spanish society, between classes and the regions, and within these between centralists and separatists. He exposes the pitiful weaknesses of the political parties, which enabled Franco, 'the iron surgeon', to overthrow Catalan separatists and proletarian socialists alike. It was a war in which the riven country of Spain became the battleground of international forces, a war which aroused the fiercest political passions, and which became the vicious preliminary skirmish in the great clash of ideologies fought out in World War Two.
