Mr. Burckhardt does not discuss the plays as theatre. Instead he states: "This book is concerned with what Shakespeare meant. I believe that Shakespeare's plays, to put it bluntly, have messages and that these messages are discoverable, in fact, statable.... Shakespeare not only abides our questions, he tells us what questions to ask; he took infinite pains to be precisely understood."

Originally published in 1968.
