This study presents a view of Shakespeare's plays
as a reworking of each other in order to highlight
changes in their linguistic texture and in the attitudes
to language portrayed within them. Each chapter
presents two plays which have common features of style,
and as the thesis progresses, I consider some of the
ways in which later plays transmute the ideas and
situations of the earlier ones.
My first chapter examines A Midsummer Night's Dream
and Romeo and Juliet. A playful spirit is evident in
these plays through experimentation with conventional
verse forms and through imagery which is used
extensively as much for its own beauty as for the
creation of atmosphere.
