Description

First published in 1964, this arresting and original work is a study of the relations between content and form in drama; the conflict between and ultimate reconciliation of certain kinds of material that life presents to the poet and the demands inherent in dramatic form and technique. There are chapters on Shakespeare’s historical plays, on Troilus and Cressida, on Milton’s Samson Agonistes and on general dramatic problems.
