Baldo (English, U. of Rochester) reveals the flaws within the notion
that Shakespeare's plays possess a limitless capacity to speak on
behalf of other generations and cultures, demonstrating that
Shakespearian drama challenges the Renaissance era's ideas about
theatrical and political representation. He examines Shakespeare's
tragedies as accounts of the demise of an older, corporeal concept of
representation and the emergence of parliamentary government.
