Subject: Late Elizabethan/Jacobean Query
I realize this question doesn't concern Shakespeare directly, but this
list does seem to me the best place to start, so: I am putting together
a course for the theatre program here of late Elizabethan and Jacobean
plays, excepting Shakespeare. I'm probably going to include The
Revenger's Tragedy, The Changling, Duchess of Malfi (perhaps The White
Devil as well), 'Tis Pity She's a Whore, The Alchemist and perhaps one
or two others. I actually have two questions: 1) what editions (either
in anthologies or single editions) of these plays would you suggest and
2) are there any films that adapt any of these plays (not productions of
the plays, but films that use the plays as inspiration -- a relationship
like Forbidden Planet to Tempest or West Side Story to R&J).
Thanks for any help you can offer.
