A classic of Shakespearean criticism, Tillyard considers the cosmic, historical and literary background and context of Shakespeare's plays and then discusses both tetralogies, King John and Macbeth with regard to their overarching themes of kingship and power.


The book is in very good condition. The dustwrapper is a little creased and chipped along the top edge.
