Shakespeare's Prose

Book Overview
Shakespearean characters from Hamlet to Much Ado about Nothing contrast prose and verse in a variety of ways and for a variety of reasons that can be very revealing of certain aspects of their personalities. First published in 1951, this book assesses the use of prose in Shakespeare's plays and, in doing so, asks larger questions about the playwright's technique and aims. Crane's investigation will be of value to anyone with an interest in Shakespeare's methods and work.
