Overview

Shakespearean Tragedy is a landmark work of literary criticism. It is at once the pinnacle of the nineteenth century's love affair with Shakespeare and the starting point for a new century of Shakespeare scholarship.

Critics have charged that A.C. Bradley attends to character at the expense of other elements of the plays, such as theme, dramatic structure, and historical background; Bradley's defenders have praised the work for its philosophical and psychological insights. As the first important, book-length academic study in English of four of Shakespeare's major tragedies - Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, and Macbeth - Bradley's work both influenced and enabled modern Shakespearean literary criticism even as it engaged with, and often rebutted, conventional Romantic and Victorian interpretations of the plays and their author.

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.
