First published in 1633, John Ford's controversial drama 'Tis Pity She's a Whore was shunned for centuries for its graphic treatment of incest. Now recognized as Ford's greatest work, the play follows the doomed romance of Giovanni and Annabella a brother and sister who fall in love and carry on a secret affair that can only end in tragedy. Bloody, disturbing, and highly poetic, 'Tis Pity She's a Whore is a must-read for anybody interested in the darker aspects of the human condition.
