L. V. Karassev Three Notes on Shakespeare.

This work examines Shakespeare's three most famous plays — «Hamlet», «Othello», and «Romeo and Juliet».

The principal task the author of these notes sets himself is to uncover the internal structure of Shakespeare's texts, to analyze a semantic layer that, without being represented in the plays in an obvious way, organizes them by degrees, frequently without the author being aware of it. This study aims to uncover the «strongest» portions of the texts, to analyze them in a comparative manner, and to describe those basal meanings that manifest themselves in sequences of variant forms. As a result, a familiar text shows a new, unexpected side of itself, uncovering a store of meaning within itself that previously could not be noticed.
