Description - The Malcontent by John Marston

Famous for its close relationship to "Hamlet", this play is a political thriller, and in typical Elizabethan fashion it mingles serious and comic elements. But, unlike "Hamlet" it is a tragicomedy, that concludes with moral transformations not tragic destruction. This book gives explanatory notes of the text, an account of the play's literary and historical context and its interpretation as a theatre work. It is aimed act actors, theatre goers and to students of Shakespeare and English drama.
