Robin Hamilton claims:

>imagery.

I guess it could only be special pleading on my part to dissent since I
am very fond of Middleton's works, the subject of my dissertation and
forthcoming book. But yikes! Are you sure you didn't mean to say Philip
Massinger? Imagery is thick in The Roaring Girl, A Chaste Maid in
Cheapside, The Changeling, and Women Beware Women. And . . . imho, each
is better than any play with Henry VI's name in the title. (Now I've
gone and done it, haven't I?)
