The author's first play. "A popular and frequently revived Gothic drama, BERTRAM was first given at Drury Lane on May 9, 1816, with the renowned Edmund Kean as Bertram. Justly praised by Scott and Byron, Maturin's play consolidated Byronic hero and Gothic villain into a single character. Among the Gothic dramas of the period, many of them mediocre, BERTRAM deserves to remain the preeminent Gothic stage spectacle." - Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 1-242. "A Gothic drama that achieved a great flurry of popular acclaim on the London stage . further forays on the boards were failures." - Bleiler (ed), Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, p. 161.
