Natural Perspective by Northrop Frye

Book Description

In A Natural Perspective, distinguished critic Northrop Frye maintains that Shakespeare's comedy is widely misunderstood and underestimated, and that the four romances - Pericles, Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale, and The Tempest - are the inevitable culmination of the poet's career. Rather than comment only on individual plays, Frye treats the comedies as a group unified by recurrent structures, devices, and images: the storm at sea, the identical twins, the heroine disguised as a boy, the retreat into the forest, the heroine with a mysterious father.

Books By Author Northrop Frye

Driv'n by Fortune by Northrop Frye Driv'n by Fortune, Paperback (December 2014)

The story of the 78th Fraser's Highlanders moves from the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion, through the Seven Years' War and the American Revolution, to the War of 1812. When these men were rewarded free land in the "New World," they brought with them revolutionary ideas, creating a legacy that extends far beyond Scotland and Canada.

Anatomy of Criticism by Northrop Frye Anatomy of Criticism, Paperback (September 2000)

Assumes that criticism is a structure of thought and knowledge in its own right. In four essays on historical, ethical, archetypical, and rhetorical criticism, employing examples of world literature from ancient times, this work reconceives literary criticism as a total history rather than a linear progression through time.
