This book was released on 2021-08-06 with total page 255 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book will serve to help the reader of Shakespeare’s plays by providing an introduction to the various literary critical issues that this great writer regularly generates. The ‘help rendered’ is largely referential, reminding the reader who said what and thought what at which point within the plays. Some of the critical issues discussed include: What is the secret of the rounded Shakespearean character (for instance, Falstaff)? What is a problem play, and what kind of philosophical arguments does Shakespeare introduce in such plays? What is the value of Shakespeare’s perspective for thinking effectively in our world now?
Download or read book The Oxford Shakespeare: The Tempest PDF or another Format written by William Shakespeare and published by Oxford Paperbacks. This book was released on 2008-04-17 with total page 259 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Performed variously as escapist fantasy, celebratory fiction, and political allegory, The Tempest is one of the plays in which Shakespeare's genius as a poetic dramatist found its fullest expression. Significantly, it was placed first when published in the First Folio of 1623, and is now generally seen as the playwright's most penetrating statement about his art. Stephen Orgel's wide-ranging introduction examines changing attitudes to The Tempest, and reassesses the evidence behind the various readings. He focuses on key characters and their roles and relationships, as well as on the dramatic, historical, and political context, finding the play to be both more open and more historically determined than traditional views have allowed.

Download or read book Beyond Tragedy PDF or another Format written by Robert W. Uphaus and published by University Press of Kentucky. This book was released on 2014-07-15 with total page 160 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this compact, yet comprehensive exploration of Shakespeare's romances, Robert W. Uphaus suggests that the romances bring us to a realm of human and dramatic experience that is "beyond tragedy." The inexorable movement of tragedy toward death and a final close is absorbed in romance by a further movement in which death can lead to renewed life, characters can experience a second time of joy and peace, and the audience's conventional expectations about reality and literature are challenged and enlarged. In the late tragedies of King Lear and Antony and Cleopatra, Uphaus finds the tragic structure augmented by elements that will later contribute to the form of the romances. Turning then to the romances themselves, he sees these plays as forming a profession in which Pericles is a brilliant outline of the conventions of romance and Cymbeline is romance taken to its dramatic limits, in fact to the point of parody. Through his fresh and provocative readings of the plays we experience anew the delight of Shakespearean romance and glimpse the world of renewal at its heart.

This book was released on 2015 with total page 297 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a literary history of international law in the age of Shakespeare, Milton, Grotius, and Hobbes. It tells the previously untold story of major English Renaissance writers who used literary genres like epic, tragedy, comedy, tragicomedy, and history to help create modern international law. Whereas international law's standard histories regularly omit literary figures and debates, Warren instead delights in the early modern contests over literary form that animated a range of major seventeenth century texts.
