            Macbeth: A Dagger of the Mind

            From Harold Bloom, the greatest Shakespeare scholar of our time, comes a portrait of Macbeth, one of William Shakespeare's most complex and compelling anti-heroes--the final volume in a series of five short books about the great playwright's most significant personalities: Falsta...ff, Cleopatra, Lear, Iago, and Macbeth. From the ambitious and mad titular character to his devilish wife Lady Macbeth to the mysterious Three Witches, Macbeth is one of William Shakespeare's more brilliantly populated plays and remains among the most widely read. Macbeth is a distinguished warrior hero, who over the course of the play, transforms into a brutal, murderous villain and pays an extraordinary price for committing an evil act. A man consumed with ambition and self-doubt, Macbeth is one of Shakespeare's most vital meditations on the dangerous corners of the human imagination. Award-winning writer and beloved professor Harold Bloom investigates Macbeth's unthinkable actions with razor-sharp insight, agility, and compassion. He also writes about his shifting understanding--over the course of his own lifetime--of this endlessly compelling figure. Acclaimed critic Bloom once again plumbs the depths of a Shakespeare play to reveal new insights [that]...will shift the reader's perceptions of a literary classic (Publishers Weekly). A lingering and deeply curious, even troubled, look at the titular character in the legendary play...this clear, concise, empathetic (Kirkus Reviews) volume delivers that kind of exhilarating intimacy and clarity in Macbeth, the final book in an essential series.

            Shakespeare's work - his language, stories and mind-expanding ideas - has endured and shaped our culture for over four hundred years. His plays have consistently been lauded for their emotional resonance, social relevance and cultural importance. But, why is it, exactly, that the...y mean so much to us? And what, in fact, do they actually mean? This lively, authoritative introduction explores twenty of Shakespeare's greatest plays in depth, exploding the myths that surround them, and illuminating why we can (and must) all read, enjoy, and argue about them. It is a book for people who enjoy the theatre, for students and enthusiasts--but also for all those people who feel they didn't get Shakespeare from the classroom, and want to have another go. It introduces a range of Shakespeare plays and some of the different methodologies and approaches readers might bring to them. It is up-to-date, covering recent topics in Shakespeare criticism - on collaboration and authorship, on gender and sexuality, on editing, and on the history of performance - via specific examples. Each chapter makes connections to others, but is also self-contained, allowing readers to dip in and out, prompted by their own interests or theatre-going.
