The Wisdom of Shakespeare

Portada
Citadel Press, 2002 - 228 páginas
Ben Jonson said Shakespeare was not 'of an age but for all time.' Harold Bloom argues that Shakespeare 'invented the human.' In his works, Shakespeare delves into the human experience as no other author before or since. His understanding and knowledge of men, women, nature, politics, education, life, death, family life and grief are as pertinent today as those of any contemporary artist. In this valuable addition to the Wisdom series, selected quotations from the man at the centre of Western literature are available for easy reference and enjoyment.
