The Meaning of Shakespeare, Volume 2

The Meaning of Shakespeare, Volume 2

In two magnificent and authoritative volumes, Harold C. Goddard takes readers on a tour through the works of William Shakespeare, celebrating his incomparable plays and unsurpassed literary genius. Goddard writes of Shakespeare with an unabashed love bordering on adoration. He was a Quaker who taught at Bryn Mawr, and his tone is that of a wise and affectionate teacher who would rather impart his enthusiasm than impose his ideas; he is fond of quoting William Blake’s saying that “enthusiastic admiration is the first principle of knowledge, and the last.” He never sounds academic.

As the original preface states: “It will serve to demonstrate, that the Art of Translation is of more dignity and importance than has generally been imagined.” (p. ix)
