[William Shakespeare.].

Shakespeare imbued A Midsummer Night's Dream with extraordinary complexity. This ethereal fantasy involves four different levels of representation, which intermingle but never wholly fuse. The enchanted forest in which most of the action takes place proves to be the ideal setting for a comedy exploring the intersection of reality and illusion, love and desire. This invaluable new literary reference presents a selection of the best contemporary criticism of one of Shakespeare's greatest plays, introduced by an essay from esteemed scholar Harold Bloom and featuring a bibliography, index, and chr.

  • "Leven en werk van de Engelse schrijver (1564-1616)."
  • "Collect critical essays written from the sixteenth through the early-twentieth centuries about the British playwright and his works."
  • "Introduces the poetry of William Shakespeare through a sampling of sonnets and excerpts from his plays. He was the greatest poet and playwright who ever lived, the dramatist who penned lines that we quote without even realizing their origin. Shakespeare's glorious works have even inspired animated films--like Disney's The Lion King. Introduce children to the Bard with this wonderful, fully annotated collection of sonnets and soliloquies, enhanced with beautiful, highly realistic color paintings that bring each excerpt to vivid life. Here are Shakespeare's most famous speeches: "To be or not to be" from Hamlet, with the melancholy Dane pictured in front of the castle, his face pensive and gazing into the distance Portia's gentle plea for mercy in The Merchant of Venice Macbeth's witches' cackling "Double, double, toil and trouble" and Marc Antony's sarcastic address to "Friends, Romans, Countrymen," in Julius Caesar. A golden-robed Henry V, kneeling and bowed from the weight of the world, ponders how rulers must bear the burden of their subjects' needs. Mercutio, seen here in a bright red background as fiery and explosive as his personality, gently teases his lovesick friend Romeo. From the tender sonnets (Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?) to the humorous songs sung by his jesters in comedies such as Twelfth Night, every page contains pure verbal and visual magic."
  • "Popularizační monografie vychází z odpovědi na stále se vracející otázku, zda autorem slavných her byl skutečně Shakespeare anebo někdo jiný.

A l'origine conçu comme une préface à la traduction des oeuvres de Shakespeare par son fils François-Victor, il s'agit d'un essai sur la fonction de l'art qui prolonge la célèbre préface de Cromwell mais aussi un plaidoyer pour un art engagé qui se construit autour de la théorie du génie."
