The Dramatic Works Of John Webster V4 is a collection of plays written by the English playwright, John Webster. This volume includes some of his most famous works, such as The Duchess of Malfi, The White Devil, and The Devil's Law-Case.

The Duchess of Malfi, for example, tells the story of a noblewoman who secretly marries her steward, leading to tragic consequences. The White Devil explores themes of revenge, betrayal, and corruption in Renaissance Italy. The Devil's Law-Case is a more lighthearted play, featuring a romantic plot and a happy ending.
