About this title


Thought of as Shakespeare's most powerful works, the four great tragedies--Hamlet, King Lear, Othello and Macbeth --are texts of unparalleled richness and depth, stimulating and exciting to study. This book takes extracts and examines them in depth to explain how the critic can use particular techniques to bring out complexities of meaning, understand the patterns of metaphor and the rhythms of the poetry and appreciate the ever-living drama. Chapters on the openings and endings of plays, heroes and heroines, society, humor, imagery and the tragic universe guide the reader on a journey of inquiry into the nature of Shakespeare's tragic vision. Far from simplifying Shakespeare, the reader is challenged to confront the depth and subtlety of the dramas and to enjoy the analytical pursuit of ever finer insight, ever fuller understanding.
