D., Literary Criticism|Reference, Literary Criticism|Shakespeare, Jacket, New hardcover, first edition w/ full no. line showing 1st printing, new unclipped mylar-protected illus. cover on heavy matte-gloss laminated stock showing orig. $30.00 price at top right inside front flyleaf, immaculate smooth-cut text-block exterior, as-new sewn binding w/ tight signatures & yellow & green-checked cloth bands at spine-caps, pristine end-papers on heavy cream-white stock, pristine interior handsomely printed on excellent unblemished paper * 6.36" x 9.50" x 1.36", 0.78 kg, xii+428 (440) pp. * Preface (ix), Introduction (1), Coda (377), Notes (385), Index (403) * Crowning a distinguished career in Shakespeare scholarship, A.D. Nuttall's brilliant study of Shakespeare's intellectual preoccupations is a literary tour de force. Certain questions engross Shakespeare from his early plays to the late romances: the nature of motive, cause, personal identity & relation, the proper status of imagination, ethics & subjectivity, language & its capacity to occlude & to communicate. Yet Shakespeare's thought, Nuttall demonstrates, is anything but static. The plays keep returning to, modifying & complicating his creative preoccupations. Nuttall allows us to hear & appreciate the emergent cathedral choir of play speaking to play. By the later stages of Nuttall's book this choir is nearly overwhelming in its power & dimensions. The author does not limit discussion to moments of crucial intellection but gives himself ample space in which to get at the distinctive essence of each work. Much recent historicist criticism has tended to flatten Shakespeare by confining him to the thought-cliches of his time, & this in its turn has led to an implicitly patronizing view of him as unthinkingly racist, sexist & so on. But Nuttall shows us that Shakespeare repeatedly proves to be more intelligent & perceptive than his 21st-century readers. This book challenges us to reconsider the relation of great literature to its social & historical matrix. It is also, perhaps, the best guide to Shakespeare's plays available in any language. * "The delight of Nuttall's book springs not just from the incisiveness of his ideas but from the deftness w/ which he unfolds scenes & speeches. It is like walking through the countryside w/ someone who recognizes every bird's song & ea. wild flower." - John Carey, The Sunday Times * "Superlatives should not be squandered, but I would unhesitatingly chose this book as the best single-volume account of Shakespeare for students & general readers on either side of the Atlantic." - Graham Bradshaw, author of 'Shakespeare's Scepticism' * "Tony Nuttall is my hero! . . . Nuttall's gifts all come together here: wisdom, sheer intelligence, immense learning, & a lifelong descent into the Shakespearean abyss." - Harold Bloom * "If you want to meet a master in perfect control of his medium, then look no further: this is beautiful English & an unhurried display of the glorious potential of language." - The Economist
