Waldstein (5): Part IV, "The Shakespearean City", contains Mr Auden's justly famous essays on Othello ("The Joker in the Pack"), The Merchant of Venice ("Brothers and Others") and Falstaff ("The Prince's Dog"), plus a shrewd comparison between Greek and Elizabethan drama ("The Globe"). Part VIII contains a long discourse on "Music in Shakespeare" which is not to be missed, either.… (mere)

Waldstein (4): An attempt to reconstruct Shakespeare's times (up until Lizzy's death) and personality by one of the twentieth-century's leading authorities on the subject. Compellingly written as fiction, but not intentionally fictional; meticulously researched yet boldly speculative. Available online.… (mere)

Forklaringer:

Waldstein (10): There is much to disagree with and not a little outright nonsense in Dr Johnson's Proposals (1756), Preface (1765) and notes on various plays, but his slightly convoluted prose and endearing personality are worth the time and the effort. This edition also contains a nice introduction by Walter Raleigh. Available online.… (mere)

Forklaringer:

Waldstein (13): Contains the famous passage that Shakespeare "of all modern, and perhaps ancient poets, had the largest and most comprehensive soul" and the equally famous comparison with Jonson: "Shakespeare was the Homer, or father of our dramatic poets; Jonson was the Virgil, the pattern of elaborate writing". See pp. 67-68 & 71 in this edition. Otherwise there are few general references to the Bard.… (mere)

Forklaringer:

Waldstein (16): Chapter XVII, "Shakespeare and the Drama" (1906), is Tolstoy's notorious attack on the Bard. At least it would have been notorious had it not been extremely silly. Worth reading, though; if only to see how goofy a reportedly great writer can become. Available online.… (mere)

Forklaringer:

Waldstein (17): Massive collection in 6 vols. of "the plays, romances, novels, poems and histories employed by Shakespeare in the composition of his works", first published in 1844. I suppose it has been superseded by the 8 vols. of Geoffrey Bullough's Narrative and Dramatic Sources of Shakespeare (1961-75), but this is hard to find and rather expensive. On the other hand, Hazlitt's "second edition, carefully revised and greatly enlarged" (1875) is easily available online. William Carew Hazlitt (1834-1913) must not be confused with the famous essayist (and his grandfather, 1778-1830).… (mere)

Waldstein (18): Remarkably comprehensive and competently written by a small army of renowned Shakespearean scholars. Nice to have as reference in hard offline times, but not without some curious omissions (Bloom, Goddard, Asimov) or unjustly perfunctory treatments (G.B.H.). More personal reflections here.… (mere)

Contains the complete text of Antony and Cleopatra as an appendix, revised by the author in accordance with his own principles which, he believes, bring us closer to what Shakespeare originally intended.

This collection also contains essays on The Winter's Tale and As You Like It and a fascinating discourse of "Shakespeare the Man". The writing is simple, clear, sensible and remarkably modern. Unjustly forgotten treasure. Available online.… (mere)

Forklaringer:

Waldstein (22): Bradley's criticism of Antony and Cleopatra is pretty ridiculous. He basically accuses the play of not being full with exciting events on the stage. True, of course, but a strange accusation against a playright known for vivid characters and brilliant language, not for action-packed plots and stage effects. Apart from that, Bradley has something interesting to say, though his dimissal of the tragedy as inferior to the Big Four rests on the "authority" of the public and is therefore not credible. Contains three essays more on Shakespeare. Available online.… (mere)

Waldstein (0): Apart from Larry's refreshing irreverence (Lear: "stupid old fart", Antony: "an absolute twerp", Romeo "lets an erection rule his life", and so on), there is little to gain from his Shakespearean musings. Better see any part of his "Shakespearean Trilogy" (Henry V, 1944; Hamlet, 1948; Richard III, 1955), or any of the Shakespearean movies he "merely" starred in (Othello, 1965; The Merchant of Venice, 1973; King Lear, 1983).
