Shakespeare: Four Great Tragedies
Among the most studied, most read, and most admired works in world literature, the tragedies of Shakespeare constitute a body of work unrivaled in dramatic brilliance, beauty of language, and profundity of thought. This volume features four of the playwrights greatest works: Hamlet, the revenge drama centering on the introspective Prince of Denmark - one of literature's most discussed and contentious characters, and the role that every actor longs to play; Macbeth, otherwise known as "The Scottish Play," concerning a nobleman's overweening ambition; Othello, in which a gallant soldier and loving husband is undone by jealousy; and Romeo and Juliet, the timeless tale of the young lovers whose names are synonymous with star-crossed romance.
