  • Shakespeare and Feminist Performanceby Sarah Werner

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 42.95

    How do performances of Shakespeare change the meanings of the plays?

By focusing on The Royal Shakespeare Company, Werner demonstrates how actor training, company management and gender politics... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1990, this title explores the nature of the interaction between Shakespeare and American culture.

  • Drama and Theatre in Urban Contextsby Kathleen Gallagher; Jonothan Neelands

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    Urban theatre can be described as theatre made with or by those whose lives are marked by the urban landscape and its social limits and possibilities. At the heart of this text lies the question of how theatre can illuminate the urban and how theatre is illuminated by the urban. The city, like a play, is a space where everything adopts multiple meanings.... more...

  • Shakespeare in French Theoryby Richard Wilson

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 43.95

    At a time when the relevance of literary theory itself is frequently being questioned, Richard Wilson makes a compelling case for French Theory in Shakespeare Studies. Written in two parts, the first half looks at how French theorists such as Bourdieu, Cixous, Deleuze, Derrida and Foucault were themselves shaped by reading Shakespeare; while the second... more...

  • Henry V pocket GIANTSby A J Pollard

    The History Press 2014; US$ 7.28

    In this concise, accessible, and engaging biography, Pollard rejects the jingoistic approach to one of England's most renowned military heroes. Henry V enjoyed spectacular success against the French, coming tantalisingly close to conquering the vast country and imposing and English dynasty; this in a reign of just nine years, in only seven of which... more...

  • Citizen-Saintsby Julia Reinhard Lupton

    University of Chicago Press 2014; US$ 45.00

    Turning to the potent idea of political theology to recover the strange mix of political and religious thinking during the Renaissance, this bracing study reveals in the works of Shakespeare and his sources the figure of the citizen-saint, who represents at once divine messenger and civil servant, both norm and exception. Embodied by such diverse... more...

  • Hamlet's Fictionsby Maurice Charney

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00

    "But in a fiction, in a dream of passion..." In an extended commentary on this passage this book offers a rationale for the excellence and primacy of this play among the tragedies. Throughout, emphasis is placed on Hamlet's fantasies and imaginations rather than on ethical criteria, and on the depiction of Hamlet as a revenge play through an exploration... more...
