Shakespeare's As You Like It: Late Elizabethan Culture and Literary Representation

Overview

Barbeau reconstructs the system of religion that Coleridge develops in Confessions of an Inquiring Spirit (1840). Coleridge's late system links four sources of divinity-the Bible, the traditions of the church, the interior work of the Spirit, and the inspired preacher-to Christ, the Word.

Overview

Barbeau reconstructs the system of religion that Coleridge develops in Confessions of an Inquiring Spirit (1840). Coleridge's late system links four sources of divinity-the Bible, the traditions of the church, the interior work of the Spirit, and the inspired preacher-to Christ, the Word. In thousands of marginalia and private notebook entries, Coleridge challenges traditional views of the formation and inspiration of the Bible, clarifies the role of the church in biblical interpretation, and elucidates the relationship between the objective and subjective sources of revelation. In late writings that develop a robust system of religion, Coleridge conveys his commitment to biblical wisdom.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With their attention to the literary, social, and historical contexts of As You Like It, Hunt helps make sense of Shakespeare's witty but puzzling comedy. Throughout, Hunt is careful to demonstrate what is at stake for the play in relation to its late-Elizabethan origins."—Douglas Bruster, author of Shakespeare and the Question of Culture

"Well and engagingly written. Provides an interesting, original, and valuable approach to an important Shakespearean comedy which would interest scholars of Renaissance literature, drama, and Shakespeare in particular.”—Grace Tiffany, Professor of Shakespeare and Renaissance Drama, Western Michigan University and author of Love's Pilgrimage and Erotic Beasts and Social Monsters

“An engaging synthesis of alert scholarship and the virtuous ‘If’ (in Touchstone’s term) of historical imagination. Hunt persuasively reconstructs many of the social, literary, and personal contexts–including echoes of both Spenser and Jonson–in which Shakespeare first crafted the play and in which audiences first enjoyed it.”—Stephen M. Buhler, Professor of English, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
