This study attempts to analyze the degree of transmutation which John Webster's borrowed material in The Duchess of Malfi undergoes. It attempts to illustrate the changes Webster made in the lines and phrases which he took from six different writers and to show how he successfully integrates these passages into the poetry of his play.
