Everybody’s Shakespeare: Reflections Chiefly on the Tragedies

Mack, Maynard (Fellow, 1984-85; Fellow, 1986-87)

Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 1993

From the publisher's description:

Everybody’s Shakespeare brings the insights and wisdom of one of the finest Shakespearean scholars of our century to the task of surveying why the Bard continues to flourish in modern times. Mack treats individually seven plays—Hamlet, King Lear, Macbeth, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Cesar, and Antony and Cleopatra—and demonstrates in each case how the play has retained its vitality, complexity, and appeal.
