Shakespeare's Development and the Problem Comedies: Turn and Counter-Turn.
Yet each of these periods both turns and counter-turns (especially in the shared word "so"), and reads both easterly and westerly; and in both periods each segment of matched voyages consists of a full chiasmus of recollection and forgetting.
Among the major critical turns and counter-turns, several stand out: Dryden signals a "gradual drift away from the prejudices of the age" (27); Hurd, influenced by French "method," redefines the critical "rules" (65); Beattie initiates a "new understanding of decorum" (80); Dowden's application of an Aristotelian "hermeneutic method" to Spenser (134) recalls Hurd even as it sounds a death-knell to the aestheticism he fomented; Greenlaw's resolute historicism in the service of cultural progressivism "might be regarded as an early version of ideology critique" (165); Berger lends Spenser criticism a "new and sustained intricacy of argument" (179).
