Although first published (in a German edition) more than 100 years ago, this study has much validity for the present-day student of Shakespeare. The author discusses the growth of the English language since Shakespeare's day, and the playwright's use of works which today would be considered corrupt or obscure. He also analyzes in considerable detail the dangers inherent in tampering with difficult phrases used by Shakespeare, and the results of such tampering.
