Four Revenge Tragedies: The Spanish Tragedy, The Revenger's Tragedy, The Revenge of Bussy D'Ambois, and The Atheist's Tragedy - Cyril Tourneur, Thomas Kyd, Thomas Middleton, George Chapman, Katharine Eisaman Maus

Every critical essay involving some other Revenge Tragedy cites The Spanish Tragedy (Kyd) as the first of its kind, which, beyond just liking the drama of the period in general, was why I wanted to read this particular book. So far we have a ghost, revenge personified and a mountain of Classical allusions.
