John Ford's tragedy 'Tis Pity She's A Whore was first performed between 1629 and 1633 and since then its themes of incest, love versus duty and forbidden passion have made it a widely studied and performed, if controversial, play.

This guide offers students an introduction to its critical and performance history, including TV and film adaptations. It includes a keynote chapter outlining major areas of current research on the play and four new critical essays. Finally, a guide to critical, web-based and production-related resources and an annotated bibliography provide a basis for further individual research.

I am pleasantly surprised by this book and i am gratified that it is in the 1600's. The Feminist philosophy seems to be that the enlightenment started with the kate Millits and gLORIA sTEINENS, ETC... (MS. FOUNDER ) others of that ilk... I read from the Russian Novels, that prostitution was legal in 1900's Russian... The Geisha is not a Prostitute that would be offensive and slanderopus, they are intelligent and skilled... the pleasure isn't the sole idea in Asian society... the Mind is important...There were other ages that were more progressive about this issue... I think we are going backwards and I believe that prostitution should FINALLY be legal and it would save teens from rape, pregnancy and disease, and it would save adults from unwilling and intimidation from the male species... Our mutual health is most important... what's the big deal, MEN are ho';s indicate the status of famous and boastful unashamed men who have conquests in the thousands... SO THE DOUBLE STANDARD IS ALIVE: AD NAUSEUM...reborn and happy to have been for the last 10 years... i was deceived TOOOOO MANY TIMES... the male is a ho... THAT'S THAT...
