Shakespearean Meanings

£15.00

Product description

Mr. Burckhardt does not discuss the plays as theatre. Instead he states: "This book is concerned with what Shakespeare meant. I believe that Shakespeare's plays, to put it bluntly, have messages and that these messages are discoverable, in fact, statable.... Shakespeare not only abides our questions, he tells us what questions to ask; he took infinite pains to be precisely understood."Originally published in 1968.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

The dustwrapper of this lovely copy of the 1969 second printing is price clipped and shows general signs of wear. The boards, however, are bright and sharp, and the contents clean and tight. A previous owner's signature and a price are both pencilled on the ffep.
