'The resource was incredibly useful and offered excellent analysis of the text. It would prove particularly useful for a teacher who is relatively unfamiliar with Malfi as it is very comprehensive. It is pitched at an appropriate academic level, clearly meeting the demands of A level.' E Kirby, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
