First class analysis of Shakespeare's tragedy.
on 17 June 2014
An insightful and at the same time thoroughly enjoyable look at four of Shakespeare's most powerful plays. Though written in 1904, the writing is perfectly easy to read and maintains an academic tone without being stuffy.
Its insights are just as illuminating now as then; I certainly don't think this has been replaced by time. I would recommend this as a pleasure to anyone with a general interest in Shakespeare and his works (such as myself), and for someone well versed in literature on Shakespeare I'd say that this is essential.
This public domain kindle version is also perfectly produced and excellently formatted. The copious notes and links work wonderfully formatted and there are hardly any mistakes in the reproduction.
