Example text

With this shift into the domestic as a topic there comes about a shift in the register of the tragic discourse. The opening of the play is a lament by Arden that Alice now loves Mosby, but it is fired by social and class concerns; the suggestion is that her adultery would be acceptable to Arden if Mosby were a gentleman. On the other hand, Alice is much more radical in her valuations of marriage; she argues that Arden would not have to die if she did not feel constrained. And marriage itself she sees as but words: Sweet Mosby is the man that hath my heart; And he usurps it, having nought but this – That I am tied to him by marriage.

3 These paradoxes are foregrounded in Renaissance drama in various ways as it debates and discusses tragedy. They are so because, as Neill and Mullaney suggest, in the shifting, changing world of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England, it is no longer possible to deal with death in a simple fashion. More specifically, it is no longer possible to contain the significance of death within the old religious, institutional framework. New ideas, new doubts, and new uncertainties undo the thinking that surrounds death and, with it, tragedy.
