Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Erne's chapter on The First Part of Hieronimo is undoubtedly the most original ... but throughout there are fresh insights, the product of close and intelligent reading of the texts, and the shrewd interpretation of evidence. Erne ... has made an excellent case for going, as his title proclaims "Beyond the Spanish Tragedy," to set Kyd's achievement in a wider context."—David Gunby, Modern Language Review

"I hope this excellent monograph, full of fresh research and convincing new arguments, will prompt someone to invite Erne to edit Kyd in order to replace Boas's edition, still the standard in its centenary year."—Paul Dean, English Studies

"[Erne's] picture of a playwright preoccupied with the themes of grief and loss radiating outwards from the dramatic epicentre of The Spanish Tragedy, is appealing."—Emma Smith, The Times Literary Supplement
