A New Mimesis: Shakespeare and the Representation of Reality

Methuen, 1983 M01 1 - 209 páginas
In pursuit of a powerful, commonsense argument about realism, renowned scholar A. D. Nuttall discusses English eighteenth-century and French neoclassical conceptions of realism and considers Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, The Merchant of Venice, Othello, and both parts of King Henry IV as a prolonged feat of mimesis, with particular emphasis on Shakespeare's perception of society and culture as subject to historical change. Shakespeare is chosen as the great example of realism because he addresses not only the stable characteristics but also the flux of things, and he is thus seen as a perceiver of that flux and not a mere specimen. An acknowledged classic of literary studies, A New Mimesis is reissued here with a new preface by the author. Book jacket.
