Demonstrates the evolution of Shakespeare's art, and similarities of dramatic theme and artistic practice that connect Shakespeare's earliest romantic comedies to his dark comedies and his late romances. New light is shed on such issues as the "unsatisfactory" endings of many of the comedies, the troubling fates of "scapegoat" figures like Shylock and Malvolio, and elements of sadness in these plays.
