Subject: 	Renaissance Tragedy

Hi Folks,

Can anyone direct me to the definitive work (or works) on English 
Renaissance Tragedy as a genre, distinct from Classical, Roman, and 
modern tragedy? I'm interested in its evolution, the tensions and 
contradictions within the genre, and its demise with the Puritan revolution.

Thanks,
Peter
