comment on the white devil as a revenge play
Flamineo plays one of the author's victims. This man is never satisfied and doesn't allow himself to truly be seen is order to hide from those around him and allay suspicion. Normally, this stance and action would be taken by the avenger, but not here......... all of these characters have a need to seem smarter and more ingenious (better) than they really are.
'I limb'd this night-piece and it was my best' (V.6.297, and cf. 11.2.38) boasts Lodovico.
Your main and obvious point of the revenge play is the murders it surrounds. The Duke of Brachiano and arrange to kill their spouses, so they can be together......... these murders immediately prompt vows of revenge from their victim's family members.
