A CRITICAL STUDY OF HIS MIND AND ART.
Second Edition, Post 8vo, cloth, price 12s.
“He has an unusual insight into the broader as well as the nicer meanings of Shakspere. • . . The book contains many valuable remarks on the drama."Saturday Review.
“Entitled to the honourable distinction due to thoroughly prepared materials and elaborate workmanship. Every page bears such marks of thought and care, both in matter and in manner.”-Examiner.
“He is, we think, most happy and most sound in his chapter on the humour of Shakspere, but from beginning to end there is no scamped work in a volume which is as serviceable as it is interesting."-World.
“The work is genial, appreciative, and well toned, glowing with admiration for the humanity of the Stratford Singer, full of passionate enthusiasm for his genius, and notable for its sustained excellence of phrase and adequate acquaintance with the literature of the subject. ... This is a right good book which all students of English literature should value and enjoy." — British Quarterly Review
“We have read the book with unflagging interest and unstinting enjoyment from the first page to the last, and we pronounce it an important and admirable contribution to the critical literature of England.”—Literary World.
“ Professor Dowden thoroughly understands Shakspere's humour. better book as an introduction to the study of Shakspere than Professor Dowden's, we do not know."-Westminster Review.
“Professor Dowden has diligently studied in the school of the German critics, from Gervinus to the latest writer in the Shakspere Jahrbuch, arid his volume is a welcome contribution to a branch of Shakspere criticism."— Graphic.
“ Professor Dowden's study of the man Shakspere seems the best work of the kind that has been written in our language."— Academy.
“C'est une cuvre de haute critique, chose assez rare chez les Anglais, de critique vraiment esthétique."-Revue Critique.
“Mr Dowden's excellent work is in the best sense of the word original.”— Guardian.
" It is needless to expatiate on the difficulty of the task which Professor Dowden has set himself, in the execution of which he has evidently spared neither thought nor pains, . . . and which, in the excellent book before us, he has performed with remarkable success."--Spectator.
"Mr Dowden is at once sympathetic and sane; nor . . . will his readers accuse him of suffering a narrow, zeal for the letter to darken a large and luminous comprehension of the spirit.”—Times.
