The Tragedy of Mariam


SKU: 42A Categories: , Tag:


Mariam thinks that her husband Herod is dead. But she’s not too upset as he murdered her grandfather and brother. When Herod actually turns up alive, Salome, Mariam’s sister-in-law from hell, accuses her of infidelity. Will Herod believe his sister and will he be a just ruler upon his return?

The Society’s edition, prepared by A.C. Dunstan and first issued in 1914, is a type-facsimile of the Quarto of 1613, the only early edition. Our current reprint of the book incorporates a 1992 supplement by Marta Straznicky and Richard Rowland, updating the original introduction.
