about

The fundamental subject of A. D. Nuttall’s bold and daring first book, Two Concepts of Allegory, is a particular habit of thought—the practice of thinking about universals as though they were concrete things. His study takes the form of an inquiry into certain conceptual questions raised, in the first place, by the allegorical critics of The Tempest, and, in the second place, by allegorical and quasi-allegorical poetry in general. The argument has the further consequence of suggesting that allegory and metaphysics are in practice more closely allied than is commonly supposed. This paperback reissue includes a new preface by the author.

"All of Nuttall's Shakespeare criticism—from Two Concepts of Allegory to Shakespeare the Thinker—testifies to his profound and continuously developing interest in how Shakespeare does his thinking."—Graham Bradshaw, author of Shakespeare's Scepticism
