    Not only were these tragedies thoroughly entertaining, they also remind you of why Shakespeare is great.

    I've only read two out of the four so far and will definitely go back to reading the other two at some point in my literary life.

    Terrific edition of four of the best early modern English tragedies not written by Shakespeare. Do not skip the editor's introduction. It is very good and will enrich the reading of these plays.

    Although none of these are up with Shakespeare in terms of language they are still great fun and this is a superb edition.

    Love this book. The Revenger's Tragedy is my favourite Renaissance plays, and this book has a very good copy. This book gives good notes and a good translations on all these plays.
