"Why pick on 'Hamlet' when there are so many other 'classics' which deserve deflation?" This question is answered in the authors' introductory note - "We haven't bothered with stuffed owls ... All the works dealt with are revered or treated as required reading"--And in the essay on "Hamlet" and forty-nine other supposed masterpieces. Most people have at some time put up with the boring, the pretentious and the badly wirtten because they have been taught reverence for "classics". The authors claim that their fifty "victims" have been overpraised for so long that the massice critical reputation surrounding each constitutes a serious obstacle blocking approaches to other greater works. The purpose of their book is to re-open these approaches

"Brigid Brophy first published her passionate, profoundly original Mozart the Dramatist in 1964, revisiting it subsequently in 1988. Organised by theme, the text offers brilliant readings of Mozart's five most famous operas - Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni, Così fan tutte, and Die Zauberflöte - while a 1988 preface reconsiders Idomeneo and La Clemenza di Tito. Brophy's analysis is richly informed by her readings and interests in psychoanalysis, myth, and relations between the sexes, but her stress above all is on Mozart's 'unique excellence', his 'double supremacy' both as a 'classical' and 'psychological' artist." from publisher's website

The tweedy Miss Hetty Braid worships the lovely but selfish Miss Antonia Mount, her co-proprietor at the most exclusive finishing school on the French Riviera. The girls they teach are quite remarkable, though hardly in the sense of academic distinction. But trouble looms when Antonia announces that 'Royalty is coming.' The great day arrives, and though at first things go tolerably well, disaster springs from good intentions
