Abstract

Shakespeare's works have been read differently by each generation since the sixteenth century. A description of Shakespeare's works often reveals more of any generation's beliefs than it does of that generation's insight into the meaning of the plays themselves.

About the Author

Dr. John Hart, a faculty member at Carnegie Mellon from 1946 until his death in 2001, spent his academic career teaching literature with a focus on Shakespeare's works. He was the author of two books about Shakespeare's comedies.
