dc.description.abstract The play under discussion has been classed by Tucker Brooke as a moral interlude which developed from the Morality Play of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Although comic interludes were popular in the middle of the sixteenth century, tragedies and historical plays had also begun to make their appearance, and the Horestes was the first historical play with a classical source to appear on the English Stage. It was also the first play in England to use the revenge of a father theme which Kyd and Shakespeare used so successfully at the turn of the century. Other historical plays like Bishop Bayle's King John and Sackville and Norton's Gorboduc chose rather to us the native history of England as a basis for their drama. en_US
