Description

A fully modernised, annotated edition of 'Tis Pity She's a Whore, Ford's controversial tragedy of sibling incest and complex revenge plots. As with all Arden editions, detailed on-page commentary notes help the student understand and appreciate the play both in performance and as a many layered literary text. The lengthy, illustrated introduction offers a wealth of critical and contextual information about the play, and explores its theme of incest from an early modern perspective. Sonia Massai reveals the startling originality of the play, which is far more than a dark rewriting of Romeo and Juliet, and the reasons for its appeal to modern audiences.
