Robert Heilman gives an appreciation of Shakespeare as a whole man. Northrop Frye writes on balance and symbolism. Harry Levin shows how Shakespeare used names to indicate and enhance character. J.V. Cunningham looks at Shakespeare in his workshop; Gunnar Bokland, and Maynard Mack also contribute brilliant studies.
