Shakespeare Criticism in the Twentieth Century traces the reception of Shakespeare in the critical literature from the end of Victorianism to the present day. Following an introductory overview of the major trends in Shakespeare criticism in their embattled state in the twentieth century, later chapters take up the various strands of this criticism in a more expansive manner.

`this account, however evenminded, also broadcasts a bracing handful of salutary advisos.' Claire Preston, Times Higher Education Supplement, 1 June 2001
`The end of the 20th century was a ceremonial occasion on which to mark and reassess all these Shakespeares of the past hundred years, and possibly to refocus the interpretive enterprise in certain ways. Michael Taylor is a shrewd and lively chronicler of this eventful history ... pleasantly chatty ... balanced and realatively informal ... Although Taylor himself is not fundamentally sceptical or suspicious, he has the delicacy to refrain from approval or disdain, letting the better and the sillier voices alike speak for themselves.' Claire Preston, Times Higher Education Supplement, 1 June 2001
`Taylor ... proves a most congenial guide on this conducted tour of 20th-century criticism ... Taylor's asides and judgements are wryly perceptive ... an admirable introduction to a dauntingly vast topic.' Rex Gibson, Around the Globe, April 2001
