British Academy Shakespeare lectures, 1980-89
Published for the British Academy by Oxford University Press, 1993 - Literary Criticism - 260 pages
For over 80 years the British Academy Shakespeare lectures have provided a forum for the leading Shakespeare critics of the day. The lectures delivered in the 1980s addressed subjects of topical interest (Shakespeare's audience and its imaginative participation in the play, Shakespeare as reviser of his own work, plays of disputed authorship), as well as examining major plays at length. All the pieces will appeal to general readers and theater-goers, as well as Shakespeare specialists.
