The longstanding challenge and problem of living through tragedy, as opposed to living beyond it or simply carrying on in spite of it, is highlighted in this extensive and in-depth scholarly study. Shakespeare was able to live through tragedy and consequently could come into those higher evolutionary states of mind and being, until now so little known, that are so impressively represented in his last plays. Remembering Shakespeare, in this year of the 400th anniversary of his death, would seem to call especially for this most far-reaching aspect of his achievement, for so long unrecognized, to be at last duly noted and laid open to view.
Significantly this volume has a moral: we will remember Shakespeare best by re-thinking how we have forgotten to do him justice.
