Wonder in Shakespeare Reviews

'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
