"One study deals with the Elizabethans' incomplete and erroneous knowledge of Scandinavian geography and the resulting confusion in Hamlet. Another essay discusses the ever-recurring problem of Othello's color. Further studies are concerned with the loose ends and contradictions in Shakespeare's plays and the ways in which these enhance the dramatic effect, and with the architectonic aspects of his drama. On the latter subject special attention is given to The Tempest and Julius Caesar, but other dramas such as Henry V and Hamlet are also considered. One close study of Henry V proposes a "Shakespearean philology" and raises fundamental questions of the relationship between language use and the exercise of power.

Strana 21 - there is no fellow in the firmament.” “So in the world: ‘tis furnished well with men, and men are flesh and blood, and apprehensive; yet in the number I do know but one that unassailable holds on his rank, unshak'd of motion; and. . . I am he!
Strana 24 - As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honour him; but, as he was ambitious, I slew him.
