King Lear : Critical Essays Hardback

Edited by Kenneth Muir

Part of the Shakespearean Criticism series

Description

Originally published in 1984. With selections organised chronologically, this collection presents the best writing on one of Shakespeare's most studied plays.

The structure displays the changing responses to the play and includes a wide range of criticism from the likes of Coleridge, Hazlitt, Moulton, Granville-Barker, Orwell, Levin, Stampfer, Gardner and Speaight interspersed with short entries from Keats, Raleigh, Freud and others.

The final chapter by the editor elucidates his own thoughts on Lear, building on his commentary in the Introduction which puts the collection in context.
