Publisher Comments:

A changeling is a fickle person, a waverer, a person posing as another person, or an idiot. The Changeling portrays them all. The play interchanges not only characters, but authors, too. Written in 1622 by William Rowley and Thomas Middleton, it is one of the most successful collaborations in the history of the theater.

Synopsis:

Middleton and Rowley's The Changeling (1622) can claim to be the finest tragedy in English outside Shakespeare. This story of a woman who becomes involved in murder without realizing the terrible price she will pay for it is developed with remarkable power and insight. The language of the play is direct and lucid, with a frequent use of biting irony. Because of these qualities, the play is eminently actable, and in the last forty years there have been numerous successful productions on the stage and on television. N.W. Bawcutt's new introduction analyzes the play in detail, taking into account and sometimes challenging recent critical approaches. A full commentary illuminates difficulties in the play for the modern reader and explores many of its linguistic subtleties.
