In the play the Duchess of Malfi, John Webster has shown his outstanding skill in characterization. He has created many significant characters in the play. The character of Bosola is essentially a remarkable character.
At the very opening of the play, we come to know about Bosola. We see him a discontented person, a rebel, satirical and melancholic. But it becomes clear to us that he has knowledge and intelligence but he was a man without social status. We can consider him a typical renaissance figure.
