About the Author

Lawrence Danson is Professor of English at Princeton University and the author of Max Beerbohm and the Act of Writing and Wilde's Intentions.


`Danson presents an interesting, useful, and often entertaining, survey of the ways in which thinking about genres had dominated the interpretation of the plays. In a book that is easily accessible to the layman, he forces us to reconsider the meaning of the traditional categories.' The Virginia Quarterly Review englightening arguments with distinguished predecessors ... gives a brief and witty summary of modern genre theory ... vivid sense of Shakespeare's plays ... scholarly sense and theatrical sensibility. Tom Deveson, Around the Globe, Jan 01.
