Shakespeare in Parts

Simon Palfrey and Tiffany Stern

  • With a new Afterword by the Authors
  • A totally new subject and focus: the first book to explore the original form in which Shakespeare's drama circulated
  • An exciting cross-fertilisation of methods, techniques, and sensibilities: archival history, close attention to language and technique, performance, the metaphysics of drama
  • Plotted through set-piece chapters on carefully chosen individual plays (Merchant, Lear, Tempest), and by set-piece analyses of particular 'parts' (including Richard II and III, Shylock, six romantic heroines, Macbeth).
  • Written in very clear language in a fluently readable style, with no jargon
