Example text

The vehicle for this suffering is the soliloquy, which comes to serve as a sign both of tragedy and of the tragic protagonist, operating as a special moment in the play and as something distinctive to the genre, though not, of course, limited to it. Part of the effect of the soliloquy, as has often been noted, is to create a sympathy with the central figure, but also, in the case of The Spanish Tragedy, to reposition the audience politically. Issues of law and violence, we see through Hieronimo’s impassioned analyses, become the responsibility not of the state machine but of individual judgment (Kinney 1999: 49).

These complex effects A Woman Killed labors to make mundane, as if they are too shocking to be shown. Sex, therefore, is made comic through the servant Nicholas spying on Anne and Wendoll, while the death of Anne is made merely tearful. Constantly A Woman Killed seeks to reduce the tragic, including the language of tragedy, to the ordinary. V Arden of Faversham and A Woman Killed with Kindness, together with Othello, place woman at the center of tragedy in a new way. Marlowe and Kyd have women characters, but their plays are male and heroic.
