Characters of Shakespeare's Plays: Large Print
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, Aug 7, 2018 - 422 pages
Characters of Shakespeare's Plays by William HazlittThe essays of William Hazlitt offer us a characteristic example of English Romantic style. Coleridge, De Quincey, and Lamb are equally excellent, but the power of their personae (the fragmentary genius, the languid eccentric, the sentimental bachelor) tend to overshadow our appreciation of the prose. But Hazlitt is not so calculating in his creation of a self; he merely speaks for his enthusiasms in literature and art in some of best prose of the period.We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.
