  • Shakespeare's Tragic Sequenceby Kenneth Muir

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    First published in 1972. The emphasis of this book is that each of Shakespeare's tragedies demanded its own individual form and that although certain themes run through most of the tragedies, nearly all critics refrain from the attempt to apply external rules to them. The plays are almost always concerned with one person; they end with the death... more...

  • Shakespeare's Sourcesby Kenneth Muir

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    First published in 1957. This book finds discovers what the sources to Shakespeare's Comedies and Tragedies really were, considers the dramatic reasons for Shakespeare's departure from them and provides many examples of the way in which he made use of his general reading for particular scenes and speeches. Kenneth Muir shows that Shakespeare frequently... more...

  • Comic Transformations in Shakespeareby Ruth Nevo

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    First published in 1980. In this study of Shakespeare's ten early comedies, from The Comedy of Errors to Twelfth Night , the concept of a dynamic of comic form is developed; the Falstaff plays are seen as a watershed, and the emergence of new comic protagonists - the resourceful, anti-romantic romantic heroine and the Fool - as the summit of... more...

  • Shakespeare's Early Tragediesby Nicholas Brooke

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    First published in 1968. Shakespeare's Early Tragedies contains studies of six plays: Titus Andronicus, Richard III, Romeo and Juliet, Richard II, Julius Caesar and Hamlet. The emphasis is on the variety of the plays, and the themes, a variety which has been too often obscured by the belief in a single 'tragic experience'. The kind of experience... more...

  • Shakespeare and the Reasonby Terence Hawkes

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    'Mr Hawkes is a good critic, oriented towards history of ideas. He operates on the formula that Shakespeare was interested in the available distinctions between discursive and intuitive reason, and disliked a growing tendency for the first to be thought of as manly and the second effeminate. One sees how this action-contemplation polarity works, in... more...

  • Shakespeare and his Comediesby John Russell Brown

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 265.00

    First published in 1957. This edition reprints the second edition of 1962. The originality, vitality and variety of Shakespeare's comedies do not suggest a writer at ease with a formula which works to his own satisfaction and the pleasure of his audience; against first impressions they suggest an artist seeking to express an idea which is always eluding... more...

  • Shakespeare's Comedy of Loveby Alexander Leggatt

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    First published in 1987. This study removes some of the critical puzzles that Shakespeare's comedies of love have posed in the past. The author shows that what distinguishes the comedies is not their similarity but their variety - the way in which each play is a new combination of essentially similar ingredients, so that, for example, the boy/girl... more...

  • Shakespeare's Poetic Stylesby John Baxter

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    First published in 1980. At their most successful, Shakespeare's styles are strategies to make plain the limits of thought and feeling which define the significance of human actions. John Baxter analyses the way in which these limits are reached, and also provides a strong argument for the idea that the power of Shakespearean drama depends upon... more...

  • The Shakespeare Insetby Francis Berry

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 225.00

    What is the relation between the language being heard and the picture being simultaneously exhibited on the stage? Typically there is an identity between sound and sight, but often there is a divergence between what the audience hears and what is sees. These divergences are 'insets' and examines the motives, mechanics and poetic qualities of these... more...

  • The Problem Plays of Shakespeareby Ernest Schanzer

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    The opening chapter traces the history of the term 'problem plays' as applied to Shakespeare and defines it more clearly and precisely than has been done in the past. Julius Caesar, Measure for Measure, Antony and Cleopatra are then discussed in separate chapters, not only as problem plays but from various points of view: such matters as themes,... more...
