Front Cover
E. Mellen Press, 2002 - Literary Criticism - 210 pages
In this study of the seventeenth century's fascination with revenge, Dr. Campbell followed a pathway of evidence that led him to certain conclusions not foreseen at the outset. In embarking on the distinct genre of revenge tragedy in the Jacobean period, Dr. Campbell did not anticipate that he would end up focusing so much on the role of the malcontent or on Milton's role in Writing what amounts to a poetic revenge tragedy in Paradise Lost.
