Shakespeare's Symmetries: The Mirrored Structure of Action in the Plays.

SKU: 17340

Ryan argues that critics have not understood the shape or pattern of Shakespeare's plays because they did not understand his method of construction, which follows a thematic pattern A-B-C-B-A. Through an analysis of 26 plays, Ryan illustrates this arch, with focal keystone, that each of the mature works follows.
