Adopted at more than 1,000 colleges and universities, Bedford/St. Martin's innovative Case Studies in Contemporary Criticism series has introduced more than a quarter of a million students to literary theory and earned enthusiastic praise nationwide. Along with an authoritative text of a major literary work, each volume presents critical essays, selected or prepared especially for students, that approach the work from several contemporary critical perspectives, such as gender criticism and cultural studies. Each essay is accompanied by an introduction (with bibliography) to the history, principles, and practice of its critical perspective. Every volume also surveys the biographical, historical, and critical contexts of the literary work and concludes with a glossary of critical terms. New editions reprint cultural documents that contextualize the literary works and feature essays that show how critical perspectives can be combined.

4.0 Hamlet, Prince of Denmark
The end scene is a WTF moment. I started reading Hamlet around Shakespeare's birthday in April. I was super into it at first then I just completely lost interest in the middle. It is a very long play. Having to force myself to finish, I am very thankful I did. Every time I read Shakespeare I am amaz...

Really enjoyable play of Shakespeare. I'm glad to see his tragedies are much better now since *cough* Titus Andronicus *cough*.The only thing is that this play can get a little confusing if you don't have a wiki right next to you. In the first page I was confused as to why the characters were saying...

Honestly, I was never a big Shakespeare fan. I thought that he was overrated, and that he doesn’t have anything special, not more than Marlow, Goethe, and so on. I still believe that his plays are overrated; but I must admit that they are not devoid of beauty, shaped by their diction and overly dram...
