About this title


An acute reader of contemporary drama and a consummate parodist,
Webster achieves in his plays a density of allusion that often produces
moments of brilliant psychological insight and theatrical ingenuity.
Working with the established conventions of revenge tragedy, the
malcontent youngster and dark sexual intrigue, he created in The White
Devil (1612) an exciting, if dramatically flawed, version of a recent
Italian scandal involving the Montalto, Orsini and de' Medici families.
The introduction to this edition disentangles the various plotlines,
illuminates Webster's interest in women as an exploited group with
innate heroic potential and shows how he dissects the misogynist
rhetoric of his male characters.
