This collection of writings brings together Northrop Frye's large body of work on Shakespeare and other Renaissance writers (with the exception of Milton, who is featured in other volumes), and includes major articles, introductions, public lectures, and four previously published books. Spanning forty years of Frye's career as a university professor and literary critic, these insightful analyses not only reveal the author's formidable intellect but also offer the reader a transformative experience of creative imagination.
