About this title
Pericles, Prince of Tyre is the story of one man's exploits on the high seas and the family he wishes to reunite against the odds. The title character loves a challenge, taking on contests of strength and wit as well as heroic acts of charity. His biggest challenge would seem to be coping with the loss of his wife at sea, but fate has another set-back in store for Pericles. Will he also have to face the death of his beloved daughter? Shakespeare offers up a satisfying adventure story which affirms both the vagaries of destiny and the redeeming power of love.Book Description:
Over the last two decades there has been a resurgence of theatrical interest in Shakespeare's Pericles, which has been rescued from comparative neglect and is now frequently performed. This development is charted in the introduction to this edition, which differs radically from any other currently available. Doreen DelVecchio and Antony Hammond reject the critical orthodoxies of a corrupt text and divided authorship. Instead they show the play to be a unified aesthetic experience. The result is a view of Pericles far more enthusiastic than that of other editors.
