Description

First published in 1961.

On her death, Professor Ellis-Fermor left behind some uncollected essays and part of a book on Shakespeare the Dramatist. This volume includes the chapters of the unfinished work and three further articles on Shakespeare. It discusses Shakespeare's methods with regard to plot, character, diction, and imagery and it contains comparative analysis of Shakespeare with other dramatists, including Ibsen and Corneille.

Reviews

'The book's critical writing shows an exceptional sensitivity of ear and of feeling'. Clifford Leach - The Spectator.

'Her reactions are always backed by detailed study, and never merely intuitive in dangerous hit-or-miss romantic tradition.' The Times Higher Educational Supplement.
