This study analyzes a characteristic feature of some Jacobean plays, the serialization of coup de theatre, by first tracing back and theoretically reconstructing its pattern in Aristotle's "Poetics" and later in the Italian literary debate and experiments on tragicomedy of the late Renaissance. The adoption of the larger European perspectives allows the study to document the peculiar, original solutions adopted by the Jacobean dramas, where this pattern is not only integrally reproduced in the case of Beaumont and Fletcher's tragicomedy, but also inventively used in a critical way by dramatists such as Tourneur, Middleton and Webster in order to create highly problematical and radical tragedies.
