Tolstoy on Shakespeare: A Critical Essay On Shakespeare 7 editions

Cover of: Tolstoy on Shakespeare by Leo Tolstoy
About the Book

Tolstoy does not like Shakespeare. Not at all. In this classic rant, Tolstoy takes Shakespeare to task for having ridiculous plots, characters without distinct personalities, endless speechifying, language no mortal would utter, no morals, a disdain for the common person, and zero sympathy for the audience.
