The Complexities of Honor in the "Maid's Tragedy."
Baines, Barbara J.
Journal of General Education, v31 n3 p159-72 Fall 1979
Contests the frequently espoused critique of Beaumont and Fletcher's work as morally irresponsible through an analysis of their play, "The Maid's Tragedy." Proposes that it achieves emotional and moral profundity emanating from a complex moral vision. Analyzes the play's philosophical intention and reveals the dramatic discovery of truth behind illusions in several scenes. (CAM)
