5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for keen Shakespeareans, 15 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Reading Shakespeare's Dramatic Language (Arden Shakespeare Library) (Paperback)
This collection of essays by some of Britain's leading Shakespeare scholars provides an overview of some of the distinctive features of Shakespeare's dramatic language. How exactly does Shakespeare make a passage dramatically elevated? What figures of speech does he use? (Be prepared for a formidably long list...) A wide range of subjects is covered, including some material which would be of particular interest to actors of Shakespearean roles. There is a good deal of fairly technical discussion, but it is explained clearly enough to be accessible to the interested non-specialist (such as myself). The essays are not all of equal interest, but no one with a passion for Shakespeare's plays will regret reading this book.
