Thomas Middleton and William Rowley's The Changeling (1622) is a Jacobean tragedy that dramatizes Renaissance fears about female sexuality. The play's heroine, Beatrice-Joanna, plots the murder of her husband-to-be, the man chosen for her by her father, in order to marry the man of her own choosing. A great deal of anxiety is provoked by the male playwrights who represent women as desiring subjects.
