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

-Peter Holland, University of Notre Dame
