9780713666632: Women Beware Women (New Mermaids)

One of the great Renaissance playwrights, Middleton wrote tragediesessentially different from either Marlowe's or Shakespeare's, beingwittier than the former and more grittily ironic than the latter. Thegenre of 'citizen tragedy' came into its own in the eighteenth century,but Middleton can claim to have created it: Bianca, wife of a middlingcommercial agent, arouses the lust of the Duke of Florence and becomeshis mistress, first secretly, then openly and finally, after herhusband has been seduced by the scheming Lady Livia and stabbed byLivia's brother, the Duke's wife. Livia plots her revenge, and the playends with a banquet and a masque that are a triumph of black farce.Middleton's powerful, psychologically complex female characters and hisclear-sighted analysis of misogyny are bound to impress today'saudiences, but it is the pervasive irony - cynicism, even - with whichhe dissects the motivations of both oppressor and victim that makes himso eerily modern.

Review:

Thomas Middleton's Jacobean drama spreads like a web around the the black- widow figure of Livia... it is clear that Livia's deviousness is a profoundly cynical response to the hipocrisy of a society in which women are powerless and men do as they please.' Sarah Hemming, Financial Times, 29.04.10 'Thomas Middleton's 17th- century study of self- survival and the destruction of innocence' Clare Allfree, Metro (London), 29.04.10 'A sardonic masterwork that admits one to the world of fuliginous cruelty.' Michael Billington, Guardian, 29.04.10 'Dark, decadent and immensely stylish, Women Beware Women makes you laugh even as you shiver.' Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph, 29.04.10 'A fiercely felt, finely wrought, seldom-seen play by one of Shakespeare's contemporaries.' Susannah Clapp, Obcerver, 02.05.10
