    Set in the heat and dust of Andalusia in seventeenth-century Spain, Cardenio is the story of a friendship betrayed, with all the elements of a thriller: disguise, dishonour and deceit.

  • The Choice of Achillesby Susanne Wofford

    Stanford University Press 1992; US$ 75.00

  • Meaning by Shakespeareby Terence Hawkes

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 45.95

    We traditionally assume that the `meaning' of each of Shakespeares plays is bequeathed to it by the Bard. It is as if, to the information which used to be given in theatrical programmes, `Cigarettes by Abdullah, Costumes by Motley, Music by Mendelssohn', we should add `Meaning by Shakespeare'. These essays rest on a different, almost opposite, principle.... more...
