I give you that To live i’ the court here, and observe the duchess; To note all the particulars of her behaviour, What suitors do solicit her for marriage, And whom she best affects. She ’s a young widow: I would not have her marry again. Footnotes: Introductory note. Of John Webster's life almost nothing is known. The Duchess of Malfi" was published in 1623, but the date of writing may have been as early as 1611.

It is based on a story in Painter's "Palace of Pleasure," translated from the Italian novelist, Bandello; and it is entirely possible that it has a foundation in fact.
