Hamlet: Complete, Authoritative Text with Biographical and Historical Contexts, Critical History, and Essays from Five Contemporary Critical Perspectives
Bedford Books of St. Martin's Press, 1994 - Počet stran: 418
This edition of Shakespeare's classic play presents the 1974 text edited by G. Blakemore Evans from The Riverside Shakespeare (complete with footnotes, glosses, and textual notes) along with five critical essays - newly commissioned or revised for a student audience - that read Hamlet from five contemporary critical perspectives. Each critical essay is accompanied by a succinct introduction to the history, principles, and practice of the critical perspective, and a bibliography that promotes further exploration of that approach. The text and essays are further complemented by an introduction providing biographical and historical contexts to Shakespeare and Hamlet, a survey of critical responses to the play since its initial publication, and a glossary of critical and theoretical terms.
