Submit a 1000 words paper on the topic Critical Analysis of The Spanish Tragedy by Thomas Kyd. Don Andreas ghost comes back with the sole purpose of witnessing Bellimperia, who was his lover when he was alive, revenge his death by killing Balthazar. During the process, the character, Revenge is expected to guide Andreas ghost as it awaits Bellimperia to murder Balthazar (Kyd 47). However, despite the fact that revenge is always a meal served cold, the revenge takes so long that Andreas runs out of patience. In fact, it even gets worse when the character, revenge dozes off while on the stage. The theme of revenge does not end with the story about Andreas ghost. In the second act, an arranged marriage between Bellimperia and Balthazar leads to the death of Horatio. This was after it was realized that Bellimperia was in love with Horatio. When Hieronimo, Horatios father learns about his sons death, he swears not to rest until those who were responsible for the death pay with their own lives. At this point, it is seen that the people who were responsible for Horatios death were above the law and the only way that this death would be avenged is if Hieronimo murdered the involved individuals by himself. Through this act, Hieronimo can be viewed as a champion of justice. However, on the other end, the morality of killing a person to avenge another persons death can be questioned. It can be argued that killing those who were involved in his sons death makes him no different from them. Revenge is also seen during the instance when Isabella burns up the garden where her sons life was brought to an end. In this case, it can be said that Isabella saw this as a better option of avenging her sons death. Many people would have the opinion that killing those who are responsible would have been more suited revenge than burning up the garden. .
