Welcome to the dark side of the Renaissance imagination, where destructive passions reign supreme, and madness and murder are never far away. We look closely at three popular plays (Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy, Webster's The Duchess of Malfi, and The Changeling by Middleton and Rowley), with their fascinating portrayals of the pitfalls of power, honour, desire - and revenge.
