Shakespeare the Englishman

Front Cover
Haskell House, 1971 - Drama - 231 pages
The noted Australian scholar brings together three papers dealing with three different aspects of Shakespearean scholarship. "Shakespeare at Home" is an attempt to explain the English environment in which the Bard was raised & which left an indelible mark on his writings. "Shakespeare the Englishman" discusses the debt that England & its dominions owe the immortal bard. Prepared during World War I it is, as the author acknowledges, an appeal to patriotism. "Shakespeare Quotation" is an analysis both of the sources from which Shakespeare "borrowed" some of his noted lines & of the meanings of some of the more esoteric ones.
