About this product
- DescriptionOriginally published by Chatto & Windus in 1960 as the second volume in a trilogy, this book has long been out of print. It offers a viewpoint seldom considered: an unusual and exceptionally clear insight into Shakespeare's philosophy. It does so with freshness, modesty and conviction.
- Author BiographyJohn Vyvyan, born in 1908 in Sussex, was educated mainly in Switzerland. His first profession was archaeology, and he worked with Sir Flinders Petrie in the Middle East. He retired from archaeology to become a Shakespearean scholar and to write. Studies such as The Shakespearean Ethic (1959), Shakespeare and the Rose of Love (1960) and Shakespeare and Platonic Beauty (1961) led to the offer of a visiting lectureship at the State University of New York. He died in Exmouth in 1975.
