13 editions published between 1963 and 1972 in English and Japanese and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Manuscript, in a single hand, of copies of 39 lectures on rhetoric. Each lecture is organized around a single topic which include the nature and use of criticism; metaphor; hyperbole; rules of figurative language; and the history and types of eloquence. Lecture 6, on language, explores the development of metaphor in "the first ages," when men lacked the vocabulary necessary to describe the objects around them, and includes the language of the Cherokee nations of Canada in the category of such societies. Lecture 27, in discussing oral delivery, describes the three pitches of a man's voice; and the last two lectures in the collection declare tragedy more noble than comedy and explain the importance of the sentiments

"Richard II marks, as this new and invigorating edition by Charles Forker demonstrates, an exciting advance in the development of Shakespeare's artistry. The play's unusual formality of structure and tone and the impressive eloquence of its style seem to express the mystique of kingship more emphatically than any of the earlier histories, while its subtle handling of the major action - the dethronement of an unsuitable anointed monarch by an illegitimate but more able one - requires the audience to engage not just with the fall of a particular king but with the viability of hereditary monarchy as such." "Forker takes a fresh look at the first part of Shakespeare's second tetralogy of history plays, relating it to the earlier histories, placing it tellingly in its contemporary context, and discussing its relation to competing theories of monarchy and to the major political concerns of the 1590s. He demonstrates how in Richard II Shakespeare's exploration of the tragic personality achieved a higher degree of psychological complexity than in any earlier work, grounding the contest for power not just in factionalism of kinship or party but also in contrasts of sensibility and temperament. The complex style, imagery and rhetoric of the play, its verbal opulence, is fully discussed both in the introduction and in the full and authoritative commentary." "The edition also analyses and reconsiders Shakespeare's use of sources, asking why he chose to emphasize one approach over another, and outlines the play's rich afterlife, focusing on its changing reputation and particularly the varied history of twentieth-century staging. As usual with an Arden edition, there is a full exposition of textual complexity and the implications of presenting a modernized text. Richard II is a play that speaks directly to today's sense of political uncertainty and assertive individuality; it is given full value in this ample and authoritative edition."--BOOK JACKET
