Comparing and Contrasting John Hebster`s “The Duchess of Malfi” and Alpha Ben`s “The Rovers”, as a Jacobian Revenge Tragedy and Restoration Comedy, Respectively.

By Emeka Anthony

Summary

The Duchess of Malfi is about a widowed noblewoman who defies the wishes of her elder brothers and secretly marries her non-aristocratic steward, Antonio, out of love, and then faces the terrible treatment from her brothers. But there's more to it than that. The Duchess of Malfi is probably most famous for its depiction of the Duchess herself. As the widow of the Duke of Malfi, the Duchess is in an almost unique position among Renaissance women because she not only has legit legal rights, but she also has considerable political power. In other hand THE ROVERS is seen as a restoration comedy in the sense that it is created to satirize the increase in open sex hawking and also the huge gap between the aristocratic class and the poor in the neoclassical period also in the area of forcing someone to marry or do something that is against he/her wish.
