"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
Beardsley and his world by Brigid Brophy( Book )

14 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A cogent portrait of Beardsley and his work. "Twenty-five years was the terrifyingly brief span of Beardsley's life. For him the world ceased on 16 March 1898. But the world he had created - in just a handful of years - survives in all its economy and wit. It is a major and still potent influence on 'modern' art and design; and it deeply affects our view of the 1890s, a decade rich in revolutionary talents - and savage reactions to them. In Beardsley's own sheer black and white world late Victorianism is stripped of its grossness, gaudiness and hypocrisy. The result is naked art that is still shocking..."
