Fiction

Thomas Middleton (1580-1627) was one of the most prolific and fascinating playwrights of the Jacobean era, producing nearly fifty theatrical pieces in a quarter of a century. This collection comprises five of his most powerful plays, from the comedies satirizing city life, "A Trick to Catch the Old One", and "A Chaste Maid in Cheapside", to his later tragedies "Women Beware Women" and "The Changeling", in which Middleton reveals a world dominated by the corrupting power of lust and subject to the futility of human pretensions. Also included is "The Revenger's Tragedy", originally ascribed to Cyril Tourneur, a Revenge Play infused with sardonic wit and biting irony
