Sample text

Like Shakespeare, they were influenced by Kyd and Marlowe, but they were also influenced by Shakespeare. This in part explains why the relationship between the tragic dramatists of the Renaissance is a more complex matter than initially seems the case, something that becomes apparent if we look at the way in which the plays themselves engage in a discussion about the nature of tragedy as a genre. Indeed, Renaissance drama is perhaps best seen as constantly in the process 24 Martin Coyle of constructing a poetics of tragedy rather than as having any single notion of tragic form.

V Arden of Faversham and A Woman Killed with Kindness, together with Othello, place woman at the center of tragedy in a new way. Marlowe and Kyd have women characters, but their plays are male and heroic. With 1600 we seem to see a shift of thinking about the subject of tragedy. In contrast to Shakespeare’s history plays, where Jean Howard and Phyllis Rackin (1997: 137) see the early plays as initially including the recognition of women as powerful figures, but then, in later plays, being excluded, in tragedy women come more and more to find a place.
