The play's prominence has earned it abundant attention from generations of critics. Its "distinctiveness" has been described as "a firestorm of theatrical tricks meant to indulge the erotic fantasies and jaded tastes of Jacobean audiences..," combined with a "philosophical drama...of substantive political and ideological concerns.The play constitutes a study of the consequences of royal intemperance in an absolute monarchy.


John Fletcher and Francis Beaumont
