In the first part of this book, Adam Max Cohen embraces the many meanings of wonder in order to challenge the generic divides between comedy, tragedy, history, and romance and suggests that Shakespeare's primary goal in crafting each of his playworlds was the evocation of one or more varieties of wonder.

'The final work in a too brief career, Adam Max Cohen's Wonder in Shakespeare is a kind of seminar on Shakespeare's multiple senses of 'wonder': prodigies, resurrections, and Miranda things that should be looked at, including that young castaway in The Tempest. This is also a book about limits the limits of language and the senses and how Shakespeare's plays capture and reflect that precious aspect of human experience." - William Germano, Cooper Union
