Problem Plays' has been an awkward category for those Shakespeare plays that don't fit the conventional groupings. Expanding from the traditional three plays to six, the book argues that they share dramatic structures designed intentionally by Shakespeare to disturb his audience by frustrating their expectations.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Because of its lucidity, clarity, and textually focused detail, the discussion is ideal for undergraduates, which is not to undervalue its scholarship . . . Margolies's insistence upon the importance of emotional response contributes usefully to a renewed critical interest in aesthetics and performance in early modern studies." - New Theatre Quarterly

"Shakespeare's Irrational Endings offers an unparalleled history of both the concept and status of problem plays. As well as the traditional trio, Margolies includes Much Ado About Nothing, The Merchant of Venice, and Othello in the 'problem play' category. These six works, Margolies argues, are designed to unsettle and worry Shakespeare's audiences by offering them appropriate formal outcomes marriages or deaths without the expected emotional release." - Notes and Queries
