William Shakespeare: Romances
Bloom's Literary Criticism, 2011 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 166 pages
The Tempest, The Winter's Tale, Measure for Measure, and All's Well That Ends Well have fascinated scholars for centuries for, among other aspects, the ways they resist an obvious genre classification. While these stories of love and familial recognition bear elements of romantic conflict, Shakespeare integrated aspects of the comedic and tragic as well in these complex works. Renowned Shakespearean scholar Harold Bloom introduces this volume of critical essays about the Bard and his romantic plays, and a chronology of his life, a bibliography, and an index will be helpful to researchers.
