Beyond Tragedy: Structure & Experience in Shakespeare's Romances, Volume 10

Front Cover
University Press of Kentucky, Jan 1, 1981 - Literary Criticism - 150 pages
In this compact, yet comprehensive exploration of Shakespeare's romances, Robert W. Uphaus suggests that the romances bring us to a realm of human and dramatic experience that is "beyond tragedy". The inexorable movement of tragedy toward death and a final close is absorbed in romance by a further movement in which death can lead to renewed life.
