Shakespeare's Rhetoric of Comic Character: Dramatic Convention in Classical and Renaissance Comedy
Psychology Press, 2005 - Počet stran: 168
First published in 1985.
In this revisionist history of comic characterization, Karen Newman argues that, contrary to received opinion, Shakespeare was not the first comic dramatist to create self-conscious characters who seem 'lifelike' or 'realistic'. His comic practice is firmly set within a comic tradition which stretches from Plautus and Menander to playwrights of the Italian Renaissance.
