Surveying the complex field of Shakespeare studies today, this book argues that a return to original practices would revive the field. Pechter advances the idea that scholars can perform more effectively by relaxing some of the materialist principles guiding current work, and by reconnecting with the traditions of Romantic commentary from which Shakespearean critical practice developed.

"Unlike almost all in this genre, Pechter's writing is charming, liberal, witty and urbane." - Archiv
