Shakespeare's Tragic PerspectiveBook - 2012
Shakespeare's Tragic Perspective directs attention to the various structural devices by which Shakespeare creates and sustains anticipation in his audience whil simultaneously provoking them to participate in the tragic protagonist's anguish. Covering the tragedies in chronological order from Titus Andronicus through Antony and Cleopatra, Larry S. Champion examines such devices as tragic pointers, character parallels, foils, subplots, diversionary episodes, cosmic ramifications, analytic asides, and soliloquies. The assumption underlying this book is that Shakespeare had something to communicated--a vision, a complex view of the world--and that his dramatic technique developed as his vision grew.
