This is the third of Fulford and Hill’s essays on Shakespeare (see
also the essays on Troilus and Timon.) All three essays discuss
lesser-known Shakespearean plays, and rely heavily on quotations and
summaries of the action of the play. This last essay, unlike the first two,
also includes a review of a contemporary performance in Haymarket.
