About the Author

A. C. Bradley was born in Cheltenham in 1851, the son of a clergyman. He was educated at Balliol College, Oxford, where he studied classics. He first taught literature at Liverpool University, then in 1889 became professor of English language and literature at Glasgow. From 1901 to 1906 he was professor of poetry at Oxford University. His lectures appeared in book form as Shakespearean Tragedy in 1904, and five years later he published Oxford Lectures on Poetry, which includes a memorable one on Antony and Cleopatra. A. C. Bradley died in 1935.

Bradley's work is worth paying for the premium edition; the table of contents has hyperlinks not only to each chapter but to each section within the chapter, facilitating navigation. The endnotes are likewise hyperlinked, keeping the Nook uncluttered while preserving Bradley's insights. The one flaw--and it is very, very minor--is that the "Content" button on the touchscreen doesn't link you to the individual chapters (instead you need to return to the table of contents and proceed from there; again, a very minor issue). Don't waste your money on the lesser versions.
