Аннотация

Из века в век люди ищут ответа на вопрос, в чем секрет величия Уильяма Шекспира, почему он затмил других замечательных представителей золотой поры английской драматургии и навсегда вписал свое имя в историю мировой литературы и театра? «Шекспир не страшится выносить темные стороны души на свет поэтической правды, на тот свет, который в одно и то же время и озаряет и очищает их, – писал глубоко чтивший английского гения И.С. Тургенев. – Шекспир, как природа, доступен всем, и изучать его должен каждый сам, как и природу. Как она, он и прост и многосложен… и постоянно исполнен внутренней гармонии». В книге представлены наиболее известные комедии драматурга: «Укрощение строптивой», «Сон в летнюю ночь», «Много шума из ничего», «Двенадцатая ночь»; его самые великие трагедии: «Ромео и Джульетта», «Гамлет», «Король Лир», «Отелло», «Макбет»; и великолепные сонеты, пленяющие силой чувств, глубиной мысли, изяществом формы. Издание богато иллюстрировано изображениями персонажей шекспировских пьес, фотоматериалами их постановок на зарубежной сцене, в дореволюционном русском театре и сценами жизни самого автора, проливающими свет на «загадку Шекспира». «Загадка Шекспира» – это тайна личности гения, тайна его творчества. И эта тайна до сих пор остается неразгаданной.

Аннотация

«Сон в летнюю ночь» – одна из самых загадочных комедий Шекспира. Легкая, ироничная, фантастическая, она обыгрывает заблуждения и предрассудки человека в любовном чувстве, но за всем этим скрыто философское представление о превратностях судьбы и ее влиянии на жизненные перипетии, об иллюзорном волшебстве обмана и свободе в прозрении. Текст публикуется в классическом переводе Т. Л. Щепкиной-Куперник, с примечаниями выдающегося шекспироведа А. А. Смирнова и иллюстрациями знаменитого английского художника Викторианской эпохи.

"The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, often shortened to Hamlet, is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare sometime between 1599 and 1602. Set in Denmark, the play depicts Prince Hamlet and his revenge against his uncle, Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father in order to seize his throne and marry Hamlet's mother. Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play and is considered among the most powerful and influential works of world literature, with a story capable of «„seemingly endless retelling and adaptation by others“».It was one of Shakespeare's most popular works during his lifetime and still ranks among his most performed, topping the performance list of the Royal Shakespeare Company and its predecessors in Stratford-upon-Avon since 1879. It has inspired many other writers—from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Charles Dickens to James Joyce and Iris Murdoch—and has been described as «„the world's most filmed story after Cinderella“». Among the most significant works William Shakespeare: Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Macbeth, Orpheus, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, Troilus and Cressida, The Tempest, Venus and Adonis, Antony and Cleopatra, Measure for Measure, The Winter's Tale and many more."

"Othello is a tragedy by William Shakespeare based on the short story «„Moor of Venice“» by Cinthio, believed to have been written in approximately 1603. The work revolves around four central characters: Othello, his wife Desdemona, his lieutenant Cassio, and his trusted advisor Iago. Attesting to its enduring popularity, the play appeared in 7 editions between 1622 and 1705. Because of its varied themes – racism, love, jealousy and betrayal – it remains relevant to the present day and is often performed in professional and community theatres alike. The play has also been the basis for numerous operatic, film and literary adaptations. Othello, suspicious and jealous military general, listened to a malicious gossip from his secret hater Iago and now believes that his beautiful wife Desdemona is unfaithful. Passionate nature of the Moor can’t bear the shame and in a burst of temper he kills the innocent Desdemona… Among the most significant works William Shakespeare: Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Macbeth, Orpheus, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, Troilus and Cressida, The Tempest, Venus and Adonis, Antony and Cleopatra, Measure for Measure, The Winter's Tale and many more."

"Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare early in his career about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed plays. Today, the title characters are regarded as archetypal young lovers. Romeo and Juliet had a profound influence on subsequent literature. Before then, romance had not even been viewed as a worthy topic for tragedy. In Harold Bloom's words, Shakespeare «„invented the formula that the sexual becomes the erotic when crossed by the shadow of death“». Of Shakespeare's works, Romeo and Juliet has generated the most—and the most varied—adaptations, including prose and verse narratives, drama, opera, orchestral and choral music, ballet, film, television, and painting. The word «„Romeo“» has even become synonymous with «„male lover“» in English. The most famous and inspirational works of William Shakespeare include: Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Macbeth, Orpheus, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, Troilus and Cressida, The Tempest, Venus and Adonis, Antony and Cleopatra, Measure for Measure, The Winter's Tale and many more. and many more."

"King Lear is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare. It tells the tale of a king who bequeaths his power and land to two of his three daughters, after they declare their love for him in an extremely fawning and obsequious manner. His third daughter gets nothing, because she will not flatter him as her sisters had done. When he feels disrespected by the two daughters who now have his wealth and power, he becomes furious to the point of madness. He eventually becomes tenderly reconciled to his third daughter, just before tragedy strikes her and then the king. Derived from the legend of Leir of Britain, a mythological pre-Roman Celtic king, the play has been widely adapted for the stage and motion pictures, with the title role coveted by many of the world's most accomplished actors. The first attribution to Shakespeare of this play, originally drafted in 1605 or 1606 at the latest with its first known performance on St. Stephen's Day in 1606, was a 1608 publication in a quarto of uncertain provenance, in which the play is listed as a history; it may be an early draft or simply reflect the first performance text. The Tragedy of King Lear, a revised version that is better tailored for performance, was included in the 1623 First Folio. Modern editors usually conflate the two, though some insist that each version has its own individual integrity that should be preserved. Among the most significant works William Shakespeare: Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Macbeth, Orpheus, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, Troilus and Cressida, The Tempest, Venus and Adonis, Antony and Cleopatra, Measure for Measure, The Winter's Tale and many more."
