Shakespeare's Dramatic Challenge: On the Rise of Shakespeare's Tragic Heroes
First published in 2002. This is the Volume III of the five G. Wilson Knight collected works series and focuses on Shakespeare’s tragic heroes for his early to later tragedies or Timon of Athens, Anthony and Cleopatra and Coriolanus. This book has grown from Knight’s dramatic recital 'Shakespeare's Dramatic Challenge', and therefore includes a prefatory note on his stage experience. The complete record, with illustrations, has already been documented in Shakespearian Production (enlarged 1964), but a rather more personal account is offered here.
