    This is nothing like as good as The Revenger s Tragedy and a question which occupies me here is to what extent the humour is intentional I think in raising the axe above his head he has struck his own brains out The atheist is called D Amville get it who worships Nature rather like Edmund in King Lear Nature is the world of human phenomena plus human reason His own intelligence enables him to manipulate his brother again a parallel with King Lear There is a constant connection betwee This is nothing like as good as The Revenger s Tragedy and a question which occupies me here is to what extent the humour is intentional I think in raising the axe above his head he has struck his own brains out The atheist is called D Amville get it who worships Nature rather like Edmund in King Lear Nature is the world of human phenomena plus human reason His own intelligence enables him to manipulate his brother again a parallel with King Lear There is a constant connection between speech and action achievedintensely in The Revenger s Tragedy, which many also consider to be by Tourneur This is supposedly a prpaganda play in which Charlemont s belief in a supreme being is opposed to the naturalism of the atheist but it can almost be understood as a persiflage of Christian dogma and warning The demonstration of God s intervention whereby the atheist knocks his own brains out by accident flies in the face of everyone s lived experience It is slapstick and surely undermines faiththan it supports it, or am I just seeing that as a modern does and would Elizabethans been suitably awed and impressed Nature is a fool There is a powerAbove her that hath overthrown the prideOf all my projects and posterityWell I am not convinced How differenmt is the revelation of the power which conquers the atheist blasphemer in Marlowe s Tamburlaine Death The play is unusual among Renaissance plays Jacobean or Elizabethan in that, dogmatic or propaganda as it may be, it nevertheless presents Christian faith against atheism in terms of argument, even rational argument, and I can think of no other play of the period which does that In that sense the play is unique

    Definitely not the most enthralling revenge tragedy I have encountered on my degree syllabus Although I enjoyed studying this text, by virtue of the fact that it covers a contemporarily taboo subject, and manages to unearth some of the idiosyncracies underpinning the era s understanding of atheism, it was not necessarily a text that I enjoyed reading, and was certainly not a match for Hamlet, the text that Tourneur unabashedly imitates.

    I can t decide if this is worst tragedy or the best farce ever written but I loved every minute of it What a magnificent disaster of a play.
