This work attempts to analyze Shakespeare's tragedies, play by play, to underline the major accidental irregularities and the more or less inspired discontinuities or "unconformities" to the found there. Performances of Shakespeare's plays are seen to eliminate or conceal the indirections and discontinuities and above all the minor discrepancies of the printed texts. But producers and directors as well as editors and "ordinary" readers are faced uncompromisingly with the texts - ultimately, the Elizabethan and Jacobean texts - and have to come to terms with them. It is regarded to be important, therefore, both for an understanding of Shakespeare's mind and craft and for a realistic interpretation of the plays to see clearly what problems of consistency they present.
