The Noble Spanish Soldiery $24.99

Thomas Dekker

Published by Nick Hern Books

2 Female

This revenge tragedy set in the Spanish court begins wih the King rejecting his betrothed lover Onelia, with whom he has a son, and instead marrying the Italian princess Paulina

As the King becomes a tyrant, a faction of courtiers grows against him, led by the Duke of Medina, the Cardinal, and the eponymous noble soldier, Balthazar

Meanwhile, Queen Paulina and her evil henchman Malateste plot to kill Onelia and her son. Filled with powerful dramatic moments of violence, pathos, satire and humour, The Noble Spanish Soldier is an under-performed and under-studied Renaissance play that deserves wider appreciation

Part of the Globe Quartos series, co-published with Shakespeare's Globe marking their rediscoveries of forgotten plays by Shakespeare's contemporaries
