Little is known of Webster's life. His fame rests on his two plays, The White Devil (c. 1609) and The Duchess of Malfi (c. 1612), two of the 17th century's greatest tragedies apart from those of Shakespeare. Webster is also known to have collaborated with Thomas Dekker on the production of Westward Hoe in 1604 and Northward Hoe the following year. He is also said to have worked with Michael Drayton, Thomas Middleton and others. Webster's works were not that popular in his own day and it is only in the past hundred years that they have had a revival. His other known works include The Devil's Law-Case (c. 1617).
