The Role of Isabella in "The Changeling"
MetadataShow full item record
The role of Isabella in "The Changeling" has received remarkably little attention. Even those very few critics who have been sympathetic to the sub plot of the play have in fact said very little about it, and therefore about Isabella. If Daalder's general contention is accepted that the play is primarily a presentation of madness and that that point cannot be grasped without examining the sub plot, Isabella must inevitably come to be seen as more important.
