The Cambridge Companion to Shakespearean Comedy
Alexander Leggatt, Professor of English Alexander Leggatt
Cambridge University Press, 2002 - 237 páginas
This is an accessible, wide-ranging and informed introduction to Shakespeare's comedies and romances. Rather than taking each play in isolation, the chapters trace recurring issues, suggesting both the continuity and the variety of Shakespeare's practice and the creative use he made of the conventions he inherited. The first section places Shakespeare in the context of classical and Renaissance comedy, his Elizabethan predecessors and the traditions of popular festivity. The second section traces themes through Shakespeare's early and middle comedies, tragicomedies and late romances, illuminating particular plays by close analysis.
