Shakespeare’s Tragedies : Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Macbeth (Hardcover) (William Shakespeare)
About this item
Four of the most important plays ever written, each one a masterpiece in human psychology, with a flawed yet fascinating main character at its heart. In more than five hundred years the characters that inhabit the tragedies of William Shakespeare have not been equalled in English literature. Macbeth: a study in overweening pride, driven to commit regicide and ultimately to despotism by an ambitious, scheming wife Othello: an outwardly strong man, a leader, brought to self-destruction by a series of lies cunningly orchestrated by a trusted confidant King Lear: one of literatures's most complex characters, his contradictions are laid bare with forensic detail Hamlet: a prince full of faults and yet, as with Lear, we feel his pain and his dilemmas.
