Russian Essays on Shakespeare and His Contemporaries

Cover
Aleksandr Tikhonovich Parfenov, Joseph G. Price
University of Delaware Press, 1998 - 209 Seiten
In explaining the plays of Shakespeare to the audiences and readers of the former Soviet Union, the editors chose essays they thought were significant, in light of the historical and cultural perspectives they contained. These perspectives are felt necessary for a complete understanding of Shakespeare's plays by the modern reader. The outward-directed essays help explain the origins of Shakespeare's importance to Russian theater and literature in the nineteenth century, as well as his pervasive influence through decades of communism.

Seite 26 - If I do prove her haggard, Though that her jesses were my dear heart-strings, I'd whistle her off, and let her down the wind, To prey at fortune.
