Shakespeare's Tragedies and Modern Critical Theory

Portada
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 1997 - 238 páginas
This book makes a distinctive contribution to the current debate between traditional humanist approaches to Shakespeare and the newer modes of analysis informed by Marxism, poststructuralism, and feminism. The study addresses a broad audience, including readers who are interested in Shakespeare but unfamiliar with critical theory. To enable such readers to gain a purchase on the theoretical debate, the author provides an introduction to the main critical positions now represented in Shakespeare studies. The underlying assumptions of humanist criticism are articulated, and the challenge posed by critical theory is explored.
