This is more a Work disambiguation notice than an Author one. The Revenger's Tragedy was published anonymously in 1607 and some 50 years later was attributed to Tourneur in a not very reliable bookseller's catalog. Beginning in the late 19th century scholars began having doubts about Tourneur's authorship of RT as its style is very dissimilar to that of the Atheist's Tragedy, the only play published with his name on the title page. Finally in the 1970s two studies independently presented very strong evidence that RT was the work of Thomas Middleton. Since then a scholarly consensus has formed in favor of Middleton and RT recently has been regularly published with Middleton's name on the title page.
