"For this updated edition, Alexander Leggatt has written a wholly new introduction to Russell Fraser's edition of one of Shakespeare's most puzzling, ambiguous and demanding plays. Leggatt's interest in performance informs his introduction and his account of the instability of the main characters. He offers a full, illustrated and thoughtful account of the play's critical and theatrical fortunes to the end of the twentieth century, and of our experience as an audience of seeing and hearing it performed. An updated reading list completes the edition."--Jacket

The war against poetry by Russell A Fraser( Book )

17 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The attack on poetry and the theater which occurred in England during the 16th and 17th centuries has been the subject of numerous scholarly investigations. This "war against poetry" was, in Professor Fraser's view, part of a larger cultural movement: the disengagement of the modern world from its medieval antecedents.Originally published in 1971.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

The Dark Ages & the Age of Gold by Russell A Fraser( Book )

18 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this original and provocative book Russell Fraser has set himself no less a task than the description and interpretation of one of the signal "facts" of Western history—the breaking away of the present from the medieval past. He locates this break in England in the sixteenth century, and on the continent two hundred years earlier. Unafraid to synthesize, he weaves a rich fabric of quotations, allusions, and examples from art, music, philosophy, theology, and physical science to explain the cultural transition to the modern world.Although the author ranges from Plato to the present, his focus is concentrated on the major figures of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, especially Shakespeare, "the last and greatest of medieval artists." His intention is always to draw together and compare medieval. Renaissance, and contemporary attitudes so that the reader can see the past becoming the present, how and when this transformation occurred, and for what reasons.Originally published in 1973.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Drama of the English Renaissance( Book )

8 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The forty-one plays gathered in these volumes constitute the most extensive new survey of Renaissance drama in over forty years, and reflect both changes in taste and advances in scholarship since earlier collections. The editors have attempted to provide the materials for a truer view of the theater in which Shakespeare worked than has hiterto been possible in anthologies. Marlowe, Jonson, and Webster, by most accounts the best of Shakepare's contemporaries, are reporesented by their major plays. -- Preface

Singing masters : poets in English, 1500 to the present by Russell A Fraser( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Singing Masters is a book for connoisseurs of poetry. It spans five centuries of verse in English but is in no way a literary history or encyclopedic survey of the genre. It is instead a celebration of the poetry that has most delighted, engaged, and challenged one man in his long and distinguished career as literary scholar and critic."--Jacket

Moderns worth keeping by Russell A Fraser( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world was livelier for these writers' presence, and what they left us still gives satisfaction. This heterogeneous group may be said to be our saving remnant. In a time of coarsened feeling, its members possess in high degree the ability to discriminate, seeing acutely, and inspiring feeling where it was dead. Their function is therapeutic, even restorative for the life of letters. To give them a hearing is the principal purpose of the book."--Jacket
