How to Understand Shakespeare's Dramas in the Context of Their Time (1590-1610): The Beginnings of Modern Theater
2023 1-4955-1147-2
"It is almost a rule of logic that anyone who doesn't need helpful directions should never consult a how-to book like this one. The subject here is not 'introduction to Shakespeare,' for which there is scarcely any need since there are plenty of them, and very good ones, too. This particular 'how-to' is also not to be taken as an academic book. ...It is, however, a book on ...the problem of reading. Here I have narrowed that wide issue to one particular kind of reading--the drama--and to one particular writer, William Shakespeare, the dramatist taken to be the most famous in the world, and who seems to present certain problems for those who want to read his work." -Gerald Snare (Preface)
