Revenge tragedy on BBC radio

On 18 June, the BBC radio programme In Our Time devoted an episode to the genre of revenge tragedy in Elizabethan and Jacobean Drama. The full episode is available online and well worth a listen. Melvyn Bragg’s guests were:

  • Jonathan Bate, Professor of Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature at the University of Warwick and (among many, many other things) editor of the Arden 3 edition of Titus Andronicus
  • Julie Sanders, Professor of English Literature and Drama at the University of Nottingham
  • Janet Clare, Professor of Renaissance Literature at the University of Hull and author of Revenge Tragedies of the Renaissance (2006)
