MALORY: THE MORTE DARTHUR
Edited by D. S. Brewer Boards 25s. net approx. Paper 12s. 6d. net approx.
There is little need specially to commend The Morte Darthur. It has been known for centuries as
a superb story of adventure and love, honour and betrayal. The Introduction summarizes what
one must know about the Arthurian story and Arthurian scholarship in order to understand and
appreciate Malory's work; but the main emphasis is on the writing itself, which still deserves
more literary study. The sections on Style, Structure and The Tragedy of the Honourable Society
are original contributions to the criticism of The Morte Darthur,

Edited by Nigel Alexander 42s. net
This is an anthology of longer poems published in English between 1560 and 1610. It is an old

Selected Prose Writings
Edited by E. D. Pendry 50s. net
This volume contains a major part of Dekker's prose writing. He is a stylist, essentially a writer
of artifice: his command of convention and the sheer variation of style and form in his work
make it highly entertaining. The texts have been carefully presented in the clearest manner. For
each piece the editor has aimed at a mean between clumsy hyperconservatism and brash over-

No. 10. AMERICAN THEATRE
This volume presents American achievement to readers on both sides of the Atlantic. Ten critics
and scholars have collaborated for this study of American theatre. The aim is to provide not one

THE ARTISTRY OF SHAKESPEARE'S PROSE
The first detailed stud/ of the use of prose in the plays, and a work of real originality in
Shakespearian studies. Dr. Vickers carefully defines the differentiation which Shakespeare

linguistic and rhetorical structure—to show the development of Shakespeare's use of
