point of view in examining the construction of a play
will not always coincide with that which we occupy
in thinking of its whole dramatic effect.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

Besides this, it is impossible, I think,
from the point of view of construction,
to regard the hero as the leading figure.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

We cannot arrive at Shakespeare's whole dramatic way
of looking at the world from his tragedies alone,
as we can arrive at Milton's way of regarding things,

a regular sequence of more exciting and less exciting sections.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

Shakespeare very rarely makes the least attempt to
surprise by his catastrophes.
They are felt to be inevitable, though the precise
way in which they will be brought about is not,
of course, foreseen.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

In Shakespearean tragedy the main source of the convulsion
which produces suffering and death is never good:
good contributes to this convulsion only from its tragic
implication with its opposite in one and the same character.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

at first makes people talk about the hero,
but keeps the hero himself for some time out of sight,
so that we await his entrance with curiosity,
and sometimes with anxiety.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

We might not object to the statement that Lear deserved to suffer for his folly,
selfishness and tyranny; but to assert that he deserved
to suffer what he did suffer is to do violence not
merely to language but to any healthy moral sense.

but even if we imagined them wearing him to death,
that would not make his story tragic.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

without attempting to shorten the path by referring
to famous theories of the drama,
to start directly from the facts, and to collect from
them gradually an idea of Shakespearean Tragedy.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley
