Re: RARA-AVIS: Re: Jacobean Noir

Date: 25 May 2003

Jacobean Tragedy is getting a major revival here in the UK (or at least has been - lots of new productions). The lovely Derek Raymond is also credited as a Jacobean style writer - I'm pretty sure one critics blurb reads, "has an almost Jacobean obsession with the skull beneath the skin". But that's off the top of my skull so I wouldn't take that as gospel.... Them Jacobean writers truly were hardboiled though! I remembre the Duchess of Malfi from school - a truly great and very disturbing play. Modern rewrites would be an interesting field for some of our tougher writers! Colin
