Note Editore
This four–volume Companion to Shakespeare's Works, compiledas a single entity, offers a uniquely comprehensive snapshot ofcurrent Shakespeare criticism.

Complementing David Scott Kastan's A Companion toShakespeare (1999), which focused on Shakespeare as an authorin his historical context, these volumes examine each of his playsand major poems using all the resources of contemporary criticismfrom performance studies to feminist, historicist, and textualanalyses.

Scholars from all over the world – Australia, Canada, France,New Zealand, the United Kingdom and United States – have joined inthe writing of new essays addressing virtually the whole ofShakespeare's canon from a rich variety of critical perspectives. Amixture of younger and more established scholars, their workreflects some of the most interesting research currently beingconducted in Shakespeare studies.

Arguing for the persistence and utility of genre as a rubric forteaching and writing about Shakespeare's works, the editors haveorganized the four volumes in relation to generic categories:namely, the tragedies, the histories, the comedies, and the poems,problem comedies and late plays. Each volume thus containsindividual essays on all texts in the relevant category as well asmore general essays looking at critical issues and approaches morewidely relevant to the genre.

This ambitious project offers a provocative roadmap toShakespeare studies at the dawning of the twentieth–firstcentury.

This companion to Shakespeare's tragedies contains originalessays on every tragedy from Titus Andronicus toCoriolanus as well as thirteen additional essays on suchtopics as Shakespeare's Roman tragedies, Shakespeare's tragedies onfilm, Shakespeare's tragedies of love, Hamlet in performance, andtragic emotion in Shakespeare.
