Episode 23: The Revenger’s Tragedy

We’re back with a classic revenge tragedy! In the mood for more revenge? Go back in the feed and listen to the episodes about The Spanish Tragedy, Women Beware Women, The Changeling, and Hamlet.

Vindice and Gloriana
Christopher Eccleston as Vindice and a skull as Gloriana in the 2003 film adaptation (dir. Alex Cox)

Talking points:

  • Characters’ names and their destinies (related: is the play a product of Middleton’s Calvinist theology?)
  • The blazing star
  • Skulls
  • This totally nuts film adaptation from 2002
