168 editions published between 1941 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 3,332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This brief and illuminating account of the ideas of world order prevalent in the Elizabethan age and later is an indispensable companion for readers of the great writers of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries - Shakespeare and the Elizabethan dramatists, Donne and Milton, among many others. The basic medieval idea of an ordered Chain of Being is studied by Professor Tillyard in the process of its various transformations by the dynamic spirit of the Renaissance. Among his topics are: Angels; the Stars and Fortune; the Analogy between the Macrocosm and the Microcosm; the Four Elements; the Four Humours; Sympathies; Correspondences; and the Cosmic Dance--ideas and symbols which inspirited the minds and imaginations not only of the Elizabethans but of all men of the Renaissance

Of all that has been written recently on Shakespearean comedy much is cross-sectional; much has pursued themes, patterns, images and son on, recurring throughout the sequence of plays. Less has been written about he plays themselves. There are of course the introductions to new editions; and there have been articles on this or that play: but any books surveying the whole sequence of the comedies have done so with some one special matter in mind. Thus, there may be room for a book like this; one that deals with the comedies primarily as plays, as separate entities. But such treatments need not
Shakespeare's last plays by E. M. W Tillyard ( Book )
50 editions published between 1938 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Years ago, Lytton Strachey advanced the theory that in his last plays--Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale, and The Tempest--Shakespeare showed himself cynical and bored with life. In this book, the author examines that theory by attempting to answer several questions in regards to these last plays. Was Shakespeare serene or disillusioned? Did he mix tragedy with comedy because it suited him to do so, to be in fashion, or with an eye to the box office? If it simply suited him, what new experience was he trying to convey?
