Women beware women A critical edition

One of the great Renaissance playwrights, Middleton wrote tragedies essentially different from either Marlowe's or Shakespeare's, being wittier than the former and more grittily ironic than the latter. The genre of 'citizen tragedy' came into its own in the eighteenth century, but Middleton can claim to have created it: Bianca, wife of a middling commercial agent, arouses the lust of the Duke of Florence and becomes his mistress, first secretly, then openly and finally, after her husband has been seduced by the scheming Lady Livia and stabbed by Livia's brother, the Duke's wife. Livia plots he.

  • "Publiée en 1612, cette pièce de théâtre est une tragédie caractéristique de la démesure et du mélange des genres du théâtre élisabéthain.

  • "Thomas Middleton's rarely performed masterpiece is a fascinating and entertaining tragicomedy (or is it a comi-tragedy?) by one of Shakespeare's most popular contemporaries. This provocative play portrays a ruling class unable to divorce power from lust as three young people are seduced by the lies and treachery of the sophisticated players in the glamorous court of the Duke of Florence, including the powerful widow, Lady Livia. A playful parody of serious sexual games ultimately showing a society imploding under the pressure of sexual manipulation, victimization and gender inequality, Middleton's outrageous masterpiece is as funny, sexy, frightening and entertaining today as it must have been 400 years ago. Red Bull Theater's critically acclaimed, extended-run production of WOMEN BEWARE WOMEN was the first Off-Broadway revival of Middleton's uproarious masterpiece in nearly forty years, and has paved the way for many more revivals at theaters across the country."@en
