The Heroic Idiom of Shakespearean Tragedy

Front Cover
University of Delaware Press, 1985 - 254 pages
Shakespeare's idiom is an aggregate of archaic modes of speech and codes of conduct. This book attempts to make that idiom more accessible and, in the process, to illuminate the significance of heroic concepts to a study of Shakespeare's tragedies and histories.
