Abstract: Since Gerard Langbaine's Account of the English Dramatic Poets in 1688, there has been much criticism of the morality in John Ford's plays. His three love tragedies, however, have never been exhaustively examined to determine their basis in morality. This thesis analyzes the morality in 'Tis Pity She's A Whore, The Broken Heart and Love's Sacrifice through a study of the texts and attention to the probable Renaissance reaction to some elements in the plays.
