PDF (12Mb)Accepted Version


The Introduction contains a discussion of previous
criticism of Tourneur's work and an account of the methods
followed in this study. This is followed by a detailed
analysis of the style of The Revenger's Tragedy, considered
in isolation, and a more cursory examination of the style of
The Atheist's Tragedy considered in relation to the earlier
play. The final chapter contains some new observations and
evidence bearing on the authorship problem. The first three
appendices relate solely to The Revenger's Tragedy, the
fourth to both plays. The whole work is based on a
concordance which I have compiled to the plays.
