My mother and I watched a BBC version of The Duchess of Malfi once and the number of apalling things that happen quickly and close together in it, especially toward the end, is striking: like a horror movie. My mother asked, "Why is this so much easier to understand than Shakespeare?" I said I thought it was because Shakespeare is thinking so much harder than Webster. People think Shakespeare is hard because the language is old-fashioned, but that's the least of it.

I find this "A New Way to Pay Old Debts" by Philip Massinger very interesting. This is full of messages needed to be read by the government and the public.
