More than 4 weeks availability
This work seeks to demonstrate that Shakespeare used semantic puns as a device of style, like metre or imagery, for various dramatic purposes and to a far greater extent than has been previously recognized, both in tragedy as well as in comedy. It persuades the reader to examine the contribution punning makes to the pleasure and emotional effect of the plays.
