Can Cordelia, when answering her fathers famous question, have made her desperate statement not because she was being literally truthful but because she deliberately wished to provoke her father to disinherit her?

Is Othello driven to murder his wife not because of jealousy but because of some other unconsciously-driven passion? How does the aural imagery with which Hamlet ends project the sound and fury of Macbeth? And why is the theme of sexuality so potent in each of the tragedies? Here is Hamlet understood comprehensively as never before, from its very first lines to its final stage direction, with even T. S. Eliots objections fully answered.

The interpretations of Othello, Lear, and Macbeth are stunningly new. Zulfikar Ghose, the distinguished novelist and poet, presents his remarkable reading of the plays in a lucid prose which will persuade the scholar and make many things clear to the theatregoer which had been previously undreamt of.
