An academic enthusiast examines Scott Lynch's The Lies of Locke Lamora semi-academically through English Renaissance city comedy and revenge tragedy. We find that applying wider literary context can guide interpretation, reader expectations, and speculation on the series as a whole – and that academia can be a lot of fun and enrich your reading experience! Good for your moral education!
