Eight Tragedies Of Shakespeare
'This book rests on a lifetime's thinking about history. It helps us see Shakespeare in "a more realistic light".' Times Literary Supplement The seventeenth century saw the brief flowering of tragic drama across Western Europe. And in the plays of William Shakespeare, this form of drama found its greatest exponent. These Tragedies, Kiernan argues, represented the artistic expression of a new social and political consciousness which permeated every aspect of life in this period. In this book, Kiernan sets out to rescue the Tragedies from the reductionist interpretations of mainstream literary criticism, by uncovering the wider historical context which shaped Shakespeare's writings. Opening with an overview of contemporary England, the development of the theatre, and a portrait of Shakespeare as a writer, Kiernan goes on to provide an in-depth analysis of eight of his Tragedies - from Julius Caesar to Coriolanus - drawing out their contrasts and recurring themes, and exploring their attitudes to monarchy, war, religion, philosophy, and changing relations between men and women.
Featuring a new introduction by Terry Eagleton, this is an invaluable resource for those looking for a new perspective on Shakespeare's writings.
Shakespeare's Legal Language
Shakespeare's Legal Language : A Dictionary is a comprehensive reference guide to Shakespeare's legal references.
An A-Z of over 100 entries explores early modern social life, legal thought, and the interaction of these within Shakespearean drama. The law is a central theme in many of Shakespeare's plays and every play in the canon makes reference to legality or justice.
Indeed, Shakespeare displays considerable interest in the capacity of legal language to convey matters of social, moral and intellectual substance and the use of legal language throughout his work shows he was clearly familiar with legal terminology.
Shakespeare's Legal Language is an ideal guide to Shakespeare's legal references for students of Shakespeare at every level.
