Comments¶ One of Hazlitt's major collection of essays, a study of the primary characters in Shakespeare’s plays, with chapters on sonnets, poems and doubtful plays. It was a popular and critical success and has remained in print virtually since the day it was first issued. This first edition is scarce.
