Shakespeare's Early Comedies by E. M. W. Tillyard
Book DescriptionThis is a perceptive and illuminating account of the background to, and range of, Shakespeare's comedy, fosucing principally upon the early plays. First published in 1965, it is written with Dr Tillyard's usual ranging curiosity, independence and brisk incisiveness. Dr Tillyard is primarily concerned with interpretation of character, and with Shakespeare's instinct in comedy to stay close to ordinary life. He examines the subtle characterisation of the two sisters in The Comedy of Errors; the importance of the Bianca theme in The Taming of the Shrew; the uneasy balance of love and friendship in The Two Gentlemen of Verona; the way in which Love's Labour's Lost mocks at male adolescence; and Shylock's spiritual stupidity in The Merchant of Venice. E.M.W. Tillyard (sometime Master of Jesus College, Cambridge) is remowned for his many works on Shakespeare and Milton.

Elizabethan World Picture, Paperback (April 1998)» View all books by E. M. W. Tillyard
The Elizabethans took from the Middle Ages the modified view of the universe which, Platonic and biblical in origin, radically differed from our own. This work elucidates such fairly familiar - though often mystifying - concepts as the four elements, the celestial harmony of 'nine enfolded Sphears', or macrocosm and microcosm.

Author Biography - E. M. W. Tillyard
E.M.W Tillyard (sometime Master of Jesus College, Cambridge) is renowed for his many works on Shakespeare and Milton. He is credited with having put forward the theory that Elizabethan literature is not representative of a brief period of humanism between two outbreaks of protestantism, but rather representative of a theological bond in England that allowed for a continuation of the Medieval view of World Order.
