Usually considered to be John Marston's masterpiece, "The Malcontent" is one of the most original and complex plays of the Elizabethan theatre - complex in genre, structure and language. A major reason for the play's pre-eminence lies in the balance it achieves between the opposite claims of laughter and horror which elsewhere in Marston's work show a less stable relationship.
