A Shakespearian theme by H. V. D. DYSON
Fellow of Merton College, Oxford
In this group of three talks Mr Dyson considers Shakespeare's handling of death, variously shown as traditionally grotesque, as nightmare, as desired peace, as broadly comic and, in the last plays, as an object of contemplation bound up with life and its understanding. Finally Mr. Dyson considers Shakespeare's attitude to the heroic.
