About the Book

First published in 1968. This re-issues the revised edition of 1979.

The Artistry of Shakespeare's Prose is the first detailed study of the use of prose in the plays. It begins by defining the different dramatic and emotional functions which Shakespeare gave to prose and verse, and proceeds to analyse the recurrent stylistic devices used in his prose. The general and particular application of prose is then studied through all the plays, in roughly chronological order.


' It is easily the best book on the subject.' - Kenneth Muir, Modern Language Quarterly.

' (This book) is likely to remain the most searching, detailed, and comprehensive account of Shakespeare's prose that we have.' - Raymond Powell, Modern Language Review.

' a great deal of new ground has been broken here, and both critics and editors will be grateful for the help they will find in these pages.' - G R Hibbard, Shakespeare Survey
