Overview

A.C.Bradley's Shakespearean Tragedy, first published in 1904, ranks as one of the greatest works of Shakespearean criticism of all time. This centenary edition includes a new introduction by Robert Shaughnessy that places Bradley's work in the critical, intellectual, and cultural context of its time, summarizes the content and argumentative thrust of the book, outlines the critical debates and counter-arguments that have followed in the wake of its publication and, most importantly, prompts readers to engage with the work itself.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The introduction is outstanding, everything one could wish it to be. Shaughnessy helps us properly to understand the nature of Bradley's project and his astonishing influence.
-Peter Holland, University of Notre Dame

Bradley's work is an incredible contribution to Shakespearean studies, yet I must recommend paying the few dollars more for the premium edition. This one doesn't have anything hyperlinked, and with the table of contents' page numbers not corresponding to the Nook's, it becomes very inconvenient to navigate through the text. There likewise are a few typing errors.
