This edition seeks to evaluateAntonio's Revengenot merely as a literary text but as a drama for a particular company, in a specific theatre. The scholarly introduction explores the high degree of originality in Marston's dramatic techniques and establishes him as a leading innovator in both the language and the dramaturgy of his day. Ostensibly the second part ofAntonio and Mellida, a satiric romance published in 1599,Antonio's Revengediffers in both theme and linguistic style. Reavley Gair offers an insightful analysis of the play's relationship with Shakespeare'sHamlet--written at about the same time--and a new interpretation of the relations between dramatic companies at the Globe and the Paul's Theatre.
