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

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?

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

The personal heresy, a controversy by E. M. W Tillyard( Book )

28 editions published between 1939 and 2008 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his brilliant essay on The Personal Heresy in Criticism C. S. Lewis attacked the widely held belief the poetry is, or should be, the expression of the poet's personality. His attempt to supplant this assumption with an objective or impersonal theory of poetry was challenged by Dr. E. M. W. Tillyard whose interpretation of Paradise Lost he had called in question. So began a courteous but searching series of exchanges between two of the most learned and original scholar-critics of the their day." -- Back cover
