Overview

Just at the moment when conflicts between critical "isms" are threatening to turn the study of English literature into a game park for endangered texts, Bradshaw arrives with a work of liberating wit and insight. His subject is double: the Shakespeare he reads and the Shakespeare whom critics in the ranks of the new historicists and cultural materialists are representing (or misrepresenting).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Bradshaw offers a dynamic critique that seeks to engage materialist critical practices on their own terms."—Ivo Kamps, Shakespeare Quarterly
Booknews
Continues Bradshaw's earlier critical work on Shakespeare by considering his perspectivism and the intricacies and complexity of a play's dramatic thinking, using Henry V and Othello as case studies. Some of the chapters have been previously published. Paper edition 8129-5, $15.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
