Shakespeare’s Lyricized Drama
by Alexander Shurbanov
Professor Alexander Shurbanov has a high and well-deserved reputation, both as a
Shakespeare scholar and as a translator of Shakespeare, Chaucer and Milton into
Bulgarian verse, so it is fascinating to read his study of the importance of lyrical
elements in Shakespeare’s dramatic verse...The relationship between the lyric and the dramatic is investigated through a series of close and extremely well-informed readings which chart a progress from Berowne to Hamlet, identifying Juliet and Rosalind as the most significant precursors of the Prince of Denmark as the character who most fully integrates the lyric into the dramatic mode...
Reviewer: Ann Thompson is Professor of English at King's College, London.
"Shakespeare’s Lyricized Drama" English Studies 93.6 (October 2012), 732-3.
