An Introduction to Shakespeare
by

Publisher: The MacMillan Company
Number of pages: 215

Description:
The advances made in Shakespearean scholarship within the last half-dozen years seem to justify the writing of another manual for school and college use. This little volume aims to present what may be necessary for the majority of classes, as a background upon which may be begun the study and reading of the plays. Critical comment on individual plays has been added, in the hope that it may stimulate interest in other plays than those assigned for study.
