Four Great Tragedies: Hamlet, Macbeth, Othello, and Romeo and Juliet
Among the most studied, most read, and most admired works in world literature, the tragedies of Shakespeare constitute a body of work unrivaled in dramatic brilliance, beauty of language, and profundity of thought. This convenient and affordable volume — ideal for students and all lovers of literature — features four of the playwright’s greatest works: Hamlet, the revenge drama centering on the introspective Prince of Denmark — one of literature's most discussed and contentious characters, and the role that every actor longs to play; Macbeth, otherwise known as "The Scottish Play," concerning a nobleman's overweening ambition; Othello, in which a gallant soldier and loving husband is undone by jealousy; and Romeo and Juliet, the timeless tale of the young lovers whose names are synonymous with star-crossed romance. Includes two selections from the Common Core State Standards Initiative: Hamlet and Macbeth.
