The Origins of English Revenge Tragedy

George Oppitz-Trotman

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Renaissance Culture

  • Establishes a new approach to the relationship between historical performance and printed literature
  • Complicates the popular concept of metatheatre
  • Offers boldly original readings of important English tragedies like Hamlet and The Spanish Tragedy
  • Shows how our encounter with difficulty in the reading of revenge plays can be equivalent to an imaginative confrontation with the contradictions of early modern theatrical action
