The Changeling by Thomas Middleton and William Rowley is a luridly sensual dramatic work which was highly regarded in its day, but then largely forgotten until its revival three hundred years later. This timely Handbook:

• examines the cultural conditions that gave rise to the play, juxtaposing them with the conditions of the twentieth century
• analyses early performances as well as later stage and film productions
• presents key critical debates and assessments of The Changeling.
