Vyvyan begins the first title ‘It is striking that Shakespeare’s tragic characters are continually asking themselves questions. In their soliloquies, they weigh up alternative courses of action, and the question is implicit: What ought I to do?’ Vyvyan reveals a remarkably consistent pattern by examining the temptation sequence in Macbeth, Hamlet and Othello, contrasting this with a process of regeneration in Measure for Measure, Winter’s Tale and The Tempest.

 

‘... the most original book about Shakespeare I have ever read’
Christopher Booker
