John Webster's Charnel house tale... a Jacobean masterpiece... the characters of this flamboyant 17th-century tragedy of wild justice would be entirely recognisable to us today from kiss and tell tabloid stories. --Guardian

I got the printed edition, which is printed and published by Amazon.
They have made no effort whatsoever to produce an actual book, - just simply chosen a pretty cover design and then slapped the text in tiny print down one side of the large format pages.
There is none of the formatting that would help to actually read or study the play.
Completely unreadable and unusable.
The play is formatted in an easy to read format and benefits from being able to bookmark and note specific pas sages.
It works I suppose, but I wouldn't recommend this if you're seriously interested in studying the text.
