Elizabeth Inchbald’s Shakespeare Criticism Karen B. Gevirtz, Ph.D.
Department of English

This chapter analyzes Elizabeth Inchbald's essays on the plays of Shakespeare, revealing how Inchbald's criticism is more than a bridge between the eighteenth-century and Romantic schools of Shakespeare criticism. Inchbald's essays also analyze Shakespeare's plays from the perspective of a fellow playwright, as well as a woman and a Catholic.
