There is no evidence that the two parts of Antonio and Mellida (Antonio and Mellida, already published in this series, and Antonio's Revenge, here presented) were designed as a continuous, ten-act, dramatic may assume from the "Epilogus" to Part I and from the theatrical practice of the time (witnessed in Henslowe's Diary) that the two parts were never performed at a single sitting.   Author of The malcontent, Antonio and Mellida, The Dutch courtesan, The scourge of villanie, , The plays of John Marston, The fawn, The insatiate countesse, The Dutch courtezanWritten works: The Dutch Courtesan, The Malcontent, The Insatiate Countess, Antonio and Mellida, The Fawn.

'The Jacobean dramatists make better sense if seen as working in Shakespeare's light'. This premise underlies Dr Frost's study of the influence of Shakespeare upon his contemporaries. Certain writers - Middleton especially - he shows to have been radically transformed, while Webster and Ford reacted against the dominant tragic mode, and yet exploited the master for their own purposes. Reunited only for a moment, perhaps for the last time, Antonio and Mellida break into a loving, kissing dialog in Italian. Later, at Mellida and Galeatzo's prenuptial banquet, just after Andrugio offers his own head for Piero's reward, Lucio arrives with Antonio's seemingly lifeless body born in a casket.
