Clarendon Press, 1999 - Drama - 292 pages
Why did Shakespeare revise his plays? In a brilliant and pioneering analysis, the distinguished critic John Jones explores the critical and dramatic significance of Shakespeare's revisions. Analyzing such plays as Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, and Troilus and Cressida, he reveals the artistic
impact of the revisions and their importance for our understanding of each play's moral and metaphysical foundations.
