2014 Reprint of 1958 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Caroline Spurgeon is known as the first female university professor in London, the second in England. In 1935, Spurgeon wrote this pioneer study on the use of images in William Shakespeare's opus. In it she analyses the different types of images and motifs that he uses in his plays. She also shows that there is a "cluster," or there are several "clusters," of images in each of the major plays, for instance, illness and injury images in "Hamlet," and light and darkness images in "Romeo and Juliet." Remains a classic study to this day.
