Long live Shakespeare (in Ireland)!

To celebrate the anniversary of Shakespeare’s (probable) birthday and death, here’s a link to a digitised copy of Shakspere: A Critical Study of his Mind and Art (1875) by Edward Dowden, the great Irish Shakespearean. 

Dowden was born in Cork in 1843 and became a Professor of English at Trinity College Dublin, also lecturing later at Oxford and Cambridge. Shakspere was his celebrated first book, published in 1875.
