A Yorkshire Tragedy

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A play published 1608, stated in the title to be by Shakespeare, but internal evidence and the late date make it extremely improbable that he had any part in its authorship. It is probably by Middleton. The play is based on certain murders actually committed in 1605.

Subjects: Literary Studies (Plays and Playwrights).
