  • Tragedies
    Tragedies (English, Hardback) William Shakespeare, Tony Tanner

    Shakespeare's four greatest tragedies were written in a remarkably short period of time, between 1598 and 1606. Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, and King Lear are each so singular an achievement that any rereading of them reinforces the awe and almost idolatrous worship that this most uncanny of the world's great writers invariably inspires. In these four plays, Shakespeare engages the problem that is...

  • Comedies
    Comedies (English, Hardback) William Shakespeare, Tony Tanner

    Shakespeare forged his tremendous art in the crucible of his comic imagination, which throughout his life enveloped and contained his tragic one. His early comedies?with their baroque poetic exuberance, intense theatricality, explosive bursts of humor, and superbly concrete realizations of the dialects of love?capture as in a chrysalis all that he was to become. They provide a complete inventory...

    Comedies (English, Hardback) William Shakespeare, Tony Tanner

    Shakespeare's later comedies were written at the astonishing pace of about two plays a year. In them, he moves beyond the farce of his earlier comedies to richer and more varied dramas.

    Romances (English, Hardback) William Shakespeare, Tony Tanner

    William Shakespeare's last four plays carry us across space and time?from classical antiquity to Roman Britain to pagan Sicily to a remote island?and they move as well into a wilder geography of the imagination, one dominated by the wondrous and fantastical, and by reconciliation and renewal. Pericles, Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale, and The Tempest are famously fraught with shipwrecks and...
