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

The Spanish Tragedy is set in...Spain!


The General describes the battle to the King; reminiscent of the same in MacBeth. Though Shakespeare did it better, this is still good! Andrea (the ghost) was killed in Spain's victory over Portingale (Portugal). Revenge has promised Andrea's ghost revenge (what else is Revenge gonna promise some-one, peanuts?) on his killer.
