5.0 out of 5 stars Three Jacobean triumphs in one book!, 3 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Three Jacobean Witchcraft Plays: Sophonisba; The Witch; The Witch of Edmonton (Revels Plays Companion Library) (Paperback)
The witches we meet in Shakespeare's Macbeth hold nothing like the malevolance and evil as the characters that are encountered in these three Jacobean plays. Neither do these plays hold the renown and fame of Macbeth and yet they deserve too. Each play shows a different aspect of the beliefs of the period and the treatment of women aswell as exploring the changing relationships between men and women in the Jacobean era. All three plays act as a comparison and contrast to each other and challenge our stereotypes of witchcraft and witches which are still held today. But whilst this may all sound terribly serious, the plays although excellent for academic study are also a thrill to read for personal pleasure. The drama, dialogue and depiction in the plays, are as entertaining and engaging in the twenty-first century as they were in the seventeenth. Whatever your reason for coming across this book don't let yourself pass it by!
