The Wheel of Fire, Paperback


Originally published in 1930, this classic of modern Shakespeare criticism proves both enlightening and innovative.

Standing head and shoulders above all other Shakespearean interpretations, this is the masterwork of the brilliant English scholar, G.

Wilson Knight. Founding a new and influential school of Shakespearean criticism, Wheel of Fire was Knight's first venture in the field - his writing sparkles with insight and wit, and his analyses are key to contemporary understandings of Shakespeare.
