Quick Reference

A tragicomedy by Massinger, acted 1623, published 1624.

One of the best of Massinger's tragi‐comedies, with some well‐developed characters and some fine satirical scenes, it is informed by his contempt for the arrogance of an effete aristocracy, which may well reflect Massinger's opinion of the ethics of the Jacobean court.

Subjects: Literature.
