Riassunto: Excerpt from Shakespeare in Europe
Like many other anthologies, this one grew out of an essen tially personal need, a need to have available in one place the scattered and in many cases untranslated texts of European Shakespeare criticism for study. Nevertheless, had I not felt that such a collection might also be of interest to the general English reader as well as to the special student with little or no competence in some of these foreign languages, I would not have pursued that need to its present point.
There exist already a number of excellent studies of Shake speare's reception in particular European countries. There have also been issued a number of works of a more comprehensive, supranational nature which deal with continental attitudes to Shakespeare by literary movements or epochs. Amofhg the former group are works by Dr. Joachimi-dege, Miss Iosephine Calina, L. Collison-morley, and others, while such studies as those of F. E. Halliday and I. G. Robertson fall, with distinc tion, among the latter. But while these writers have dealt with their materials as literary historians, their methods were those of an earlier generation. They tended to summarize texts and frequently to disrupt them by isolating terms and passages. Rarely have they allowed large portions of texts to speak for themselves. This is one oversight which the present work is intended partially to rectify. Then, too, these writers con structed chronologies for the most part rather than attempt ing to see European intellectual development in its entirety, an entirety often conspicuously disdainful of political divi sions, with the result that even their best works seem to be layer cakes of information and conclusions.
