Shakespeare: The Tragedies free pdf This comprehensive study is also a work of detection and reappraisal. Each tragedy is considered both as a text and as a play to experience in performance. Shakespeare's engagement with this form of drama is followed step by step until its concluding years of intense activity. No theory of tragedy emerges, but rather an increasing ability to maintain and communicate a clear perception of a changing and often violent society in which action is stronger than words or conscious intention.
