This companion to Shakespeare's poems, problem comedies, and late plays contains original essays on "Troilus and Cressida," "Measure for Measure," "All's Well That Ends Well," Venus and Adonis, The Rape of Lucrece, and The Sonnets, as well as "Pericles," "The Winter's Tale," "Cymbeline," "The Tempest," Henry VIII, and "The Two Noble Kinsmen." In addition, it includes eleven essays on such topics as the reception history of the sonnets, collaboration in Shakespeare's middle and late plays, the generic classification of Shakespeare's late plays, "The Tempest" in performance, and the relation of Shakespeare's "problem plays" to the work of contemporary dramatists.
