Book DescriptionFrederick Kiefer looks at the personified characters created by Shakespeare in his plays (his walking, talking abstractions) in this study of Shakespeare's visual culture. These include Rumour in 2 Henry IV, Time in The Winter's Tale, Spring and Winter in Love's Labour's Lost, Revenge in Titus Andronicus, and the deities in the late plays. Kiefer reconstructs their appearances; explains the symbolism of their costumes and props; and assesses their significance for the plays in which they appear.
