  • 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...

  • Shakespeare and the Reasonby Terence Hawkes

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 46.43

    '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...

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 55.72

    First published in 1973, this book is about Shakespeare, language and drama.
