The Tragedies of William Shakespeare


Shakespeare's gift for writing tragedies was powerful indeed. His ability to create epic tragic characters -- think Hamlet, Lear, and the star-crossed Romeo and Juliet -- and scenarios is virtually unrivalled. Readers examine the Bard's major tragedies and their significance, and touch upon the state of theatre and dramatic performance in Shakespeare's England for good measure.
