9781594625480: The Spanish Tragedy

The Spanish Tragedy, highly influential and popular in its time, established a new genre in English theatre - the revenge play or revenge tragedy. The plot of ""The Spanish Tragedy"" contains several violent murders and includes as one of its characters a personification of Revenge. This work was often referenced in works written by other Elizabethan playwrights, including William Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, and Christopher Marlowe. Many elements of The Spanish Tragedy, such as the play-within-a-play appear in Shakespeare's Hamlet. Thomas Kyd is also frequently proposed as the author of the lost Ur-Hamlet play that was one of Shakespeare's primary sources for Hamlet)

About the Author:

Thomas Kyd (1558-1594) was an English dramatist, the author of The Spanish Tragedy, and one of the most important figures in the development of Elizabethan drama. Although well known in his own time, Kyd fell into obscurity until 1773 when Thomas Hawkins (an early editor of The Spanish Tragedy) discovered that Kyd was named as its author by Thomas Heywood in his Apologie for Actors (1612). A hundred years later, scholars in Germany and England began to shed light on his life and work, including the controversial finding that he may have been the author of a Hamlet play pre-dating Shakespeare's.

About the Author:

Andrew Gurr is Professor of English at Reading University.
