9780192834492: 'Tis Pity She's a Whore and Other Plays: The Lover's Melancholy; The Broken Heart; 'Tis Pity She's a Whore; Perkin Warbeck (Oxford World's Classics)

Ford wrote darkly about sexual and political passion, thwarted ambition, and incest. This selection of four plays also shows his ability to portray the poignancy of love as well as write entertaining comedy and create convincing roles for women. Setting Ford's earliest surviving independently written play, The Lover's Melancholy, alongside his three best-known works, The Broken Heart, 'Tis a Pity She's a Whore, and Perkin Warbeck, this edition includes an introduction with sections on each play, addressing gender issues, modern relevance, and staging possibilities.

About the Author:

Marion Lomax is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Language and Literature, St Mary's University College, Strawberry Hill.

Review:


"Lomax and Oxford are to be conreatulated, as several of these plays have been unavailable, and they are fine contributions.... The texts are clear and carefully done. Spelling and punctuation have been modernized, and the editor provides a good, brief introduction to each of the plays, a chronology of Ford's life, and a glossary."--Choice
