The Revenger’s TragedyWhile Shakespeare’s Hamlet was set in the Elizabethan era, The Revenger’s Tragedy is one that makes one reminisce about the Elizabethan era. It is brutal tragedy by Thomas Middleton. It is a brutal series of events in which a young fellow seeks to and sets out to seek revenge from an elder who he believes is responsible for a person he holds dear. The hero, Vindice, does not mean any stone unturned and any technique unused in his quest to avenge the death of his love. What sets this particular tragedy apart from others is that in his desire to so, Vindice chooses to leave behind all questions of morality in his desire to avenge his love’s death.In order to pursue the greater good, the lead character in The Revenger’s Tragedy breaks all the existing bounds of human and ethical morality and chooses to dedicate his very existence to his ultimate goal of avenging the death of his love. What sets apart The Revenger’s Tragedy from other tragedies is that in this particular tragedy, the degree to which the lead character is immersed in his desire to attain vengeance is of such a high extent that it surpasses him and he begins to forget all sense of himself and the world around him and is willing to sacrifice everything that he has to in order to attain vengeance. One of the few reasons because of which The Revenger’s Tragedy is considered to be a monumental play is that in the end, the hero of the play becomes just as denounced of character as the villain since he leaves behind all forms of judgment based on morality. So much so that he has no objection against ending his own life if he can have his revenge. He enters into a vicious brawl with the villain and eventually manages to attain his vengeance, but not without having to forgo his own life for the sake, which he gladly chooses to do.
