Of the many books on Shakespeare's history plays, this is the first conceived in terms of ideas rather than of individual plays, and treating both the English and the Roman plays alike as evidence of the dramatist's point of view. In his wide-ranging and original enquiry into Shakespeare's interpretation of history, Dr. Wilders devotes each chapter to a prominent idea which can be discerned in all the history plays. -- Book cover.
