Description

First published in 1951. The edition reprints the second, updated, edition, of 1977.

When first published this book quickly established itself as the standard survey of Shakespeare's imagery considered as an integral part of the development of Shakespeare's dramatic art. By illustrating, through the use of examples the progressive stages of Shakespeare's use of imagery, and in relating it to the structure, style and subject matter of the plays, the book throws new light on the dramatist's creative genius.

The second edition includes a new preface and an up-to-date bibliography.
