Webster's plays are often seen as subordinate to those of his contemporary, William Shakespeare.

This book shows students how Webster's dramas are equal to those of Shakespeare, through analysing both his dramatic and poetic skills.

It focuses in particular on Webster's heroines and the tightly male dominated world in which they are seen to struggle.

Chapters on openings and endings, turning points, theatricality and imagery, as well as characters, give the student analytical tools with which to approach the plays.
