An Introduction to Shakespeare

 
9781492909484: An Introduction to Shakespeare

The acclaimed continuous record of the life of William Shakespeare from birth to death.

A text on Shakespeare's life, literature, and legend by the English Department at Sheffield Scientific School of Yale.

The advances made in Shakespearean scholarship within the last half-dozen years seem to justify the writing of another manual for school and college use. This little volume aims to present what may be necessary for the majority of classes, as a background upon which may be begun the study and reading of the plays. Critical comment on individual plays has been added, in the hope that it may stimulate interest in other plays than those assigned for study.
