The Malcontent, usually considered to be John Marston's masterpiece, is one of the most original plays of the Elizabethan theatre--complex in genre, structure, and language. A major reason for the play's preeminence lies in the balance it achieves between the opposite claims of laughter and horror. This edition has notes designed for modern undergraduate use and the introduction has been rewritten to take into account the most recent scholarship.

"This Malevole is one of the most prodigious affections that ever conversed with nature: a man, or rather a monster, more discontent than Lucifer." The Malcontent is a striking example of the new satiric tone and moral seriousness in English comedy of the early 1600s. The play's vision of a fallen humanity driven by lust and ambition is created partly by its depiction of Machiavellian intrigue in the court of Genoa, and partly by the disaffected Malevole, the malcontent of the title, who is actually the deposed Duke Altofronto in disguise. Marston's tragi-comedy is full of reversals, surprises and moral transformations and offers a thin disguise for the Jacobean court and its vices. This new student edition contains a lengthy new Introduction with background on the author, date and sources, theme, critical interpretation and stage history.

The Malcontent by Bomani Mawuli Brace yourself. The Malcontent is explosive — it’s packed with action. This fictional story is a fascinating narrative about the continuing struggle for freedom and justice in America for black people in the 21st century. However, unlike the Civil Rights movement, the road to freedom in this book makes a hard left turn down the path towards radical politics. Despite the election and presidency of Barack Obama, some black people in America are still dissatisfied and unhappy. They know nothing about a post-racial America. They only know about racism and oppression in America. This is their American experience. John Black, the book’s main character, is one of the dissatisfied, one of the malcontents. He is a political activist who quickly finds himself in trouble with the law. Initially, he is able to escape being arrested by the police. He is a wanted man and becomes a big news story. The police and the media are in hot pursuit of John Black. While on the run, Black manages to meet with his girlfriend and some of his other friends. They give him advice and support. He has a decision to make: should he turn himself in

The Mispronuciation of Who. is a suspenseful observation of a contemporary playwright retreating from his society. He tries to live the life of a recluse in a small coastal village, where the villagers possess a lighter-than-air, floating-away mentality not unlike the high-desert mind of the southwest.
