Shakespearean Tragedies includes lectures on the following four William Shakespeare plays: HAMLET, OTHELLO, KING LEAR, and MACBETH.
In these lectures I propose to consider the four principal tragedies of Shakespeare from a single point of view. Our one object will be what, again in a restricted sense, may be called dramatic appreciation; to increase our understanding and enjoyment of these works as dramas; to learn to apprehend the action and some of the personages of each with a somewhat greater truth and intensity, so that they may assume in our imaginations a shape a little less unlike the shape they wore in the imagination of their creator.
These lectures are based on a selection from materials used in teaching at Liverpool, Glasgow, and Oxford; and I have for the most part preserved the lecture form.
