The translations, by leading experts in the field, are accurate and above all actable. The editions of English-language plays include a glossary of unusual words and phrases to aid understanding.

When Annabella is found to be pregnant by her brother Giovanni, she agrees to marry her suitor Soranzo. But when the lovers' incestuous secret is discovered, vengeance and bloody murder follow. This Drama Classics edition is edited and introduced by Lisa Hopkins.
