Reviews


"Tightly organized, richly documented, and carefully articulated....A sophisticated study that well deserves our attention."--Sixteenth Century Journal


"Summarizes and extends our understanding of Shakespeare's magisterial way with sources. Adept in discerning possible classical influences, Miola's book refines our vision of the playwright at work, adding another lens through which to view his accomplishment without drastically changing the old prescription."--Classical and Modern Literature


"The chapters are rich in insight, both about influences on Shakespeare as well as on the interpretation of individual Shakespearean plays....Persons interested in reflecting upon the development of Shakespeare's tragic heroes will find much to stimulate thought."--Religious Studies Review


"Impressive in its scholarship."--Renaissance Quarterly
