Like Shakespeare's Juliet, Annabella, accompanied by her down-to-earth
nurse, is introduced to a series of suitors to her hand. Like Juliet,
she finds all of them unsatisfactory - and rightly so, for the audience
know that the nastiest of them is having an affair with her domineering
aunt. Like Juliet, Annabella is wooed by a sensitive and passionate
young man whose love she returns - but this young man happens to be her
own brother, Giovanni. When they consummate their love and she, to
avoid the scandal of extramarital pregnancy, agrees to marry her aunt's
lover, the tragic outcome is inevitable. John Ford, writing his
psychologically powerful and intellectually challenging tragedies in
the early years of King Charles I's reign, is a playwright of the first
rank, as 20th-century directors have shown both in the theatre and on
film.

Autorenporträt
John Ford (1586-1639) was an English playwright whose works have often been cited as examples of the 'decadence' of Caroline Drama. In the 19th century he was admired by Charles Lamb but attacked by William Hazlitt and others, who accused him of lacking a sense of morality. However, many 20th-century critics have praised his insight into character and his skill in writing dialogue

His best known play is the bloody tragedy 'Tis Pity She's a Whore (1627). Other works inlcude Love's Sacrifice (1627), the tragicomedy The Lover's Melancholy (1628), and Perkin Warbeck (1634), described by T. S. Eliot as "one of the very best historical plays in the whole of Elizabethan and Jacobean drama".
