Shakespeare by Kiernan Ryan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


First published in 1989, this 3rd edition, a critical study of Shakespeare, has been revised, updated and expanded with new material, so it is twice the size of the first edition. The section on Shakespearean comedy now includes an essay on Shakespeare's first scintillating experiment in the genre, "The Comedy of Errors", and a study of his most perplexing problem play, "Measure for Measure". A new last chapter,' "Dreaming on things to come" - Shakespeare and the Future of Criticism, reveals how much modern criticism can learn from the appropriation of Shakespeare by Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw and James Joyce.
