C. Knights offers the fruits of his long-term thinking about individual plays (notably, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, Lear) and explores the ways in which a deep and imaginative understanding of Shakespeares work can relate to and enrich other areas of knowledge - politics, history, social and emotional relationships, the nature of theatrical experience ...

Certain critical assumptions are of course implicit here: that great works of art have a continuing life which is renewed through perception- that the vitality generated by such works is for all men and that the critics function is to encourage all readers to see as much as they can for themselves, not to dogmatize or try to impose a particular reading.

L. C. Knights admirably fulfils this function in these essays most of which have been gathered from the three volumes entitled Explorations, Further Explorations and Explorations 3.
