Shakespeare's Rhetoric of Comic Character: Dramatic Convention in Classical and Renaissance Comedy

Portada
Psychology Press, 2005 - 168 páginas

First published in 1985.

In this revisionist history of comic characterization, Karen Newman argues that, contrary to received opinion, Shakespeare was not the first comic dramatist to create self-conscious characters who seem 'lifelike' or 'realistic'. His comic practice is firmly set within a comic tradition which stretches from Plautus and Menander to playwrights of the Italian Renaissance.
