The Dragon and the Dove: The Plays of Thomas Dekker

by

This book takes a completely fresh and controversial view of the playwright, Thomas Dekker (1570-1632). Gasper reveals Dekker as a bold and pugnacious writer who constantly experimented with form in order to find a vehicle for his militant Protestant ideas. He examines in particular Dekker's central work, The Whore of Babylon , showing how the play's apocalyptic ideas and concern for the international True Church provide the key to understanding all his work.
