Woods, Gillian (2009) New directions: the confessional identities of "'Tis Pity She’s a Whore". In: Hopkins, L. (ed.) 'Tis Pity She's a Whore: A Critical Guide. London, UK: Continuum, pp. 114-135. ISBN 9780826499332.
Book synopsis: 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.
