Catherine Belsey (1985) suggests, however, that the soliloquy as a device is not so much the effect of an individual mind as constructed out of disparate voices played across the human subject, and that these voices contain traces of an earlier morality drama, as in the following lines from Kyd: No, no, Hieronimo, thou must enjoin Thine eyes to observation, and thy tongue To milder speeches than thy spirit affords. 39–41) The body here is in fragments so that the speaker “is at once unified and discontinuous” (Belsey 1985: 46), present on stage as a human agent but divided severally in the speech itself.

IV If we take Kyd and Marlowe together we can construct a diachronic model of how tragedy changed from, say, Gorboduc, a 1560s play about the tragic consequences of dividing the state, to King Lear, another play on the same theme. It is an attractive, evolutionary model, even though it omits complicating factors such as Shakespeare’s early tragedies of Titus Andronicus, Romeo and Juliet, and Julius Caesar. As Lawrence Danson (2000: 116) suggests, these can be placed in a number of different categories, so that we might reasonably speak of a number of different developments or patterns of tragedy.
