The characters of these tragediesKing Lear, Hamlet, Macbeth, and Othellospeak to all of us; indeed they are all of us. As the commentary in these four volumes reveals, their motivations and feelings are different aspects of the thought system of specialness we all share; and had these characters chosen the path of compassion and forgivenessthe thought system of healing we all likewise sharethe ensuing outcome would surely not have been tragic. A Course in Miracles teaches us that choosing the Holy Spirit rather than the ego enables us to smile at the ego's silliness as we stand free of its insanity and viciousness.

Four hundred years after Shakespeare s death, his plays live on in theater and popular culture, given new life through countless innovative approaches to their performance and interpretation. Just as our enthusiasm for seeing the plays performed and transformed affirms their continued life, death scenes in Shakespeare s plays tend to mark not an ending but a transformation of life. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, "Shakespeare s Dead" documents the many ways Shakespeare s characters meet their demise, from suicide to murder, from death by workaday dagger to the more creative method of being baked and fed to one s family in a meat pie. Through these examples, Simon Palfrey and Emma Smith show Shakespeare s mastery at choreographing death as a means of rediscovery. Some characters refuse to go quietly, dying in stages, as in Nick Bottom s performance as Pyramus killing himself with much flourish in "A Midsummer Night s Dream." Others are remembered in elegies, and still others are resurrected or reappear as ghosts. Shakespeare s death scenes also often speak to the boundaries between theater and everyday life, with funerals and scenes of mourning that are undercut by their staged inauthenticity. Extensively illustrated with contemporary drawings and images from stage history, " Shakespeare s Dead" takes readers through the playwright s great death scenes and tragic figures, exploring in them the theme of life in death and delineating the cultural, religious, and social contexts."

For more than two hundred years after William Shakespeare's death, no one doubted that he had written his plays. Since then, however, dozens of candidates have been proposed for the authorship of what is generally agreed to be the finest body of work by a writer in the English language. In this remarkable book, Shakespeare scholar James Shapiro explains when and why so many people began to question whether Shakespeare wrote his plays. Among the doubters have been such writers and thinkers as Sigmund Freud, Henry James, Mark Twain, and Helen Keller. It is a fascinating story, replete with forgeries, deception, false claimants, ciphers and codes, conspiracy theories—and a stunning failure to grasp the power of the imagination. As Contested Will makes clear, much more than proper attribution of Shakespeare’s plays is at stake in this authorship controversy. Underlying the arguments over whether Christopher Marlowe, Francis Bacon, or the Earl of Oxford wrote Shakespeare’s plays are fundamental questions about literary genius, specifically about the relationship of life and art. Are the plays (and poems) of Shakespeare a sort of hidden autobiography? Do Hamlet, Macbeth, and the other great plays somehow reveal who wrote them? Shapiro is the first Shakespeare scholar to examine the authorship controversy and its history in this way, explaining what it means, why it matters, and how it has persisted despite abundant evidence that William Shakespeare of Stratford wrote the plays attributed to him. This is a brilliant historical investigation that will delight anyone interested in Shakespeare and the literary imagination.

Hamlet One of the most famous plays of all time, the compelling tragedy of the young prince of Denmark who must reconcile his longing for oblivion with his duty to avenge his father’s murder is one of Shakespeare’s greatest works. The ghost, Ophelia’s death and burial, the play within a play, and the breathtaking swordplay are just some of the elements that make Hamlet a masterpiece of the theater. Othello This great tragedy of unsurpassed intensity and emotion is played out against Renaissance splendor. The doomed marriage of Desdemona to the Moor Othello is the focus of a storm of tension, incited by the consummately evil villain Iago, that culminates in one of the most deeply moving scenes in theatrical history. King Lear Here is the famous and moving tragedy of a king who foolishly divides his kingdom between his two wicked daughters and estranges himself from the young daughter who loves him–a theatrical spectacle of outstanding proportions. Macbeth No dramatist has ever seen with more frightening clarity into the heart and mind of a murderer than has Shakespeare in this brilliant and bloody tragedy of evil. Taunted into asserting his “masculinity” by his ambitious wife, Macbeth chooses to embrace the Weird Sisters’ prophecy and kill his king–and thus, seals his own doom. Each Edition Includes: • Comprehensive explanatory notes • Vivid introductions and the most up-to-date scholarship • Clear, modernized spelling and punctuation, enabling contemporary readers to understand the Elizabethan English • Completely updated, detailed bibliographies and performance histories • An interpretive essay on film adaptations of the play, along with an extensive filmography
