The Tragedy of Mariam
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.
