The Oxford Shakespeare The Tempest

Author: William Shakespeare
Publisher: Oxford Paperbacks
ISBN: 0199535906
Release Date: 2008-04-17
Genre: Drama

Performed variously as escapist fantasy, celebratory fiction, and political allegory, The Tempest is one of the plays in which Shakespeare's genius as a poetic dramatist found its fullest expression. Significantly, it was placed first when published in the First Folio of 1623, and is now generally seen as the playwright's most penetrating statement about his art. Stephen Orgel's wide-ranging introduction examines changing attitudes to The Tempest, and reassesses the evidence behind the various readings. He focuses on key characters and their roles and relationships, as well as on the dramatic, historical, and political context, finding the play to be both more open and more historically determined than traditional views have allowed.

On the Date Sources and Design of Shakespeare s The Tempest

Author: Roger A. Stritmatter
Publisher: McFarland
ISBN: 9780786471041
Release Date: 2013-08-05
Genre: Literary Criticism

This book challenges a longstanding and deeply ingrained belief in Shakespearean studies that The Tempest--long supposed to be Shakespeare's last play--was not written until 1611. In the course of investigating this proposition, which has not received the critical inquiry it deserves, a number of subsidiary and closely related interpretative puzzles come sharply into focus. These include the play's sources of New World imagery; its festival symbolism and structure; its relationship to William Strachey's True Reportory account of the 1609 Bermuda wreck of the Sea Venture (not published until 1625)--and the tangled history of how and why scholars have for so long misunderstood these matters. Publication of some preliminary elements of the authors' arguments in leading Shakespearean journals (starting in 2007) ignited a controversy that became part of the critical history. This book presents the case in full for the first time.

Sir Gawain and The Green Knight

Author: Keith Harrison
Publisher: Oxford Paperbacks
ISBN: 9780199540167
Release Date: 2008-09-11
Genre: Literary Criticism

Sir Gawain and The Green Knight, with its intricate plot of enchantment and betrayal is probably the most skilfully told story in the whole of the English Arthurian cycle. Originating from the north-west midlands of England, it is based on two separate and very ancient Celtic motifs of the Beheading and the Exchange of Winnings, brought together by the anonymous 14th century author. Acclaimed poet Keith Harrison's new translation uses a modernalliterative pattern which subtly echoes the music of the original at the same time as it strives for fidelity. This is the most generously annotated edition available, complete with a detailed introduction whichsituates the work in the context of Arthurian Romance as well as analysing its poetics and narrative structure.

The Oxford Shakespeare Hamlet

Author: William Shakespeare
Publisher: Oxford Paperbacks
ISBN: 0199535817
Release Date: 2008-04-17
Genre: Drama

Hamlet's combination of violence and introspection is unusual among Shakespeare's tragedies. It is also full of curious riddles and fascinating paradoxes, making it one of his most widely discussed plays. Professor Hibbard's illuminating and original introduction explains the process by which variant texts were fused together in the eighteenth century to create the most commonly used text of today. Drawing on both critical and theatrical history, he shows how this fusion makes Hamlet seem a much more `problematic' play than it was when it originally appeared in the First Folio of 1623. The Oxford Shakespeare edition presents a radically new text, based on that First Folio, which printed Shakespeare's own revision of an earlier version. The result is a `theatrical' and highly practical edition for students and performers alike.
