Description:

Very light rubbing to extremities, tiny nudges to lower corners. Slight sunning to DJ spine and .5" along top and spine edge of rear panel. Gilt lettering to spine, mulberry cloth-covered boards. Clean, unmarked text. Tight binding. A lovely copy. 183 pp with appendices, notes and index. "Speculating on the essence of tragedy, this provocative . book suggests that the literary works we call tragedies have their value as enabling actions: dramatic tragedies can render us capable, temporarily, of enduring practical, personal experience of the fact of infinity," (front flap). Part 1 focuses on King Lear, Part 2 looks at Macbeth, and to bridge these two essays is a chapter on Love's Labor's Lost and its similarities to King Lear. In an appendix, Booth talks of the Elizabethan and Jacobean practice of doubling and Shakespeare's possibly intentional "exploitation of artistic definition/indefinition." NEAR FINE in Near Fine Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory #
