9780692247594: Shakespearean Tragedy: Lectures on Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Macbeth

Far above any modern Shakespearean criticism we know. -The Spectator

A.C. Bradley, Professor of Poetry at the University of Oxford, was the foremost Shakespearean scholar of the early twentieth century. His study of the four great tragedies, Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, and Macbeth, was a major breakthrough in its time and has remained a standard text ever since.

The light Bradley throws on many of the plays’ most famous problems is continually surprising and illuminating, such as his famous explanation of melancholy as the cause of Hamlet’s delay, and his astonishing account of Iago and the evil children in King Lear as tragic characters in their own right.

Beautifully written with accessible and well organized analyses of character, plot, and language, Shakespearean Tragedy helps the reader approach these great works directly, as art, to be richly enjoyed through clear understanding.

About the Author:

Bradley, Andrew Cecil was born in 1851 in Cheltenham. He was the son of a clergyman and the younger brother of the philosopher F.H. Bradley. He received his education at Cheltenham College and at Balliol College, Oxford, where he became a fellow in 1874, lecturing in Philosophy and English. In 1882 Bradley became the first Professor of Literature and History at Liverpool, and later on Professor of English Language and Literature at Glasgow from 1890, and Professor of Poetry at Oxford from 1901 until 1906, when he retired from academic life.
