Item description for Arden Shakespeare: Reading Shakespeare's Dramatic Language by Sylvia Adamson, Lynette Hunter, Lynne Magnusson, Ann Thompson & Katie Wales...

This accessible and interdisciplinary volume addresses a fundamental need in current education in language, literature and drama. Many of today's students lack the grammatical and linguistic skills to enable them to study Shakespearean and other Renaissance texts as closely as their courses require. This practical guide will help them to understand and use the structures and strategies of written and dramatic language. Eleven short essays on aspects of literary criticism and performance by an eminent team of contributors are followed by a more detailed exploration of the history of language use, grammar and spelling, plus a glossary of terms offering definitions, contexts and examples. Together these provide an informed and engaging historical understanding of dramatic language in the early modern period.

Reviews - What do customers think about Arden Shakespeare: Reading Shakespeare's Dramatic Language?

Recommended for keen Shakespeareans  Mar 25, 2004
This collection of essays by some of Britain's leading Shakespeare scholars provides an overview of some of the distinctive features of Shakespeare's dramatic language. How exactly does Shakespeare make a passage dramatically elevated? What figures of speech does he use? (Be prepared for a formidably long list...) A wide range of subjects is covered, including some material which would be of particular interest to actors of Shakespearean roles. There is a good deal of fairly technical discussion, but it is explained clearly enough to be accessible to the interested non-specialist (such as myself). The essays are not all of equal interest, but no one with a passion for Shakespeare's plays will regret reading this book.
