Description

Operating on the premise that Shakespeare's writings are a unified exploration of the human experience, Philip Edward's new work stresses the continuity of all the works--plays and poems, early and late writings, comedies and tragedies. The achievement of the plays is examined in chapters which maintain the traditional categories of comedy, history, and tragedy, but Edwards makes an important contribution to the field with his analysis of "tragicomedy"--a genre which unites the middle "problem" comedies with the final engimatic "romances."show more
