"Today the number and nature of interpretive strategies developed by contemporary theorists for reading Shakespeare's texts may not only delight but also disconcert the scholars, critics, teachers, and students who study them. In this work, six leading Shakespearean scholar-critics, in a series of clear and elegant lectures delivered to undergraduate English majors, explain distinctive procedures that they and other influential, contemporary critics use for interpreting Shakespeare's poems and plays. Workshops, which illustrate with Shakespearean texts the practice of specific methods, follow the lectures." "Helen Vendler (Harvard) guides readers to Shakespeare's poetry by explaining and illustrating how to hear the unexpected and unobtrusive but crucial questions that sonnets pose, and by tracing the increasingly powerful perceptions that precise, informed aesthetic responses to these questions evoke. R. A. Foakes (UCLA) identifies basic cultural issues underlying traditional approaches to teaching Shakespeare's plays, especially the tragedies, and explains how poststructuralist responses to these issues lead to a reevaluation of the "Bard." Leah Marcus (U. Texas, Austin) also explains cultural issues, particularly about the "construct" that has become "Shakespeare," and introduces editorial questions about the actual textual versions offered to students, notably of Hamlet and King Lear. With emphasis on the plays in performance, John Wilders (Oxford, Middlebury) delivers a structure-oriented, acting-centered analysis of Julius Caesar and then directs, in similar fashion, a production of the first scene of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Patricia Parker (Stanford), on the other hand, follows intricate lines of wordplay through a series of deconstructions and reconstructions in The Merry Wives of Windsor and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Bringing the series to a close, Annabel Patterson (Duke) presents an explicitly issue-oriented analysis of editorial, critical, scholarly, dramatic, and cinematic interpretations of Henry V; and she offers a concluding commentary on the workshops of her colleagues."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

« Television Shakespeare » : l’expression a-t-elle encore un sens à une époque où Shakespeare à la télévision ne se réduit plus à la série BBC mais est devenu, notamment au fil des innovations technologiques, un concept de plus en plus hybride, porteur d’une infinie variété ? Ce volume offre au lecteur un examen précis d’adaptations télévisuelles des pièces shakespeariennes tout en questionnant les limites poreuses que le 21e siècle fait apparaître entre la télévision et les autres médias, Shakespeare semblant pouvoir ou devoir se prêter à toutes les métamorphoses.

The impetus for this Approaches to Teaching volume on The Taming of the Shrew grew from the editors' desire to discover why a play notorious for its controversial exploration of conflicts between men and women and the challenges of marriage is enduringly popular in the classroom, in the performing arts, and in scholarship. The result is a volume that offers practical advice to teachers on editions and teaching resources in part 1, "Materials," while illuminating how the play's subtle and complex arguments regarding not just marriage but a host of other subjects--modes of early modern education, the uses of clever rhetoric, intergenerational and class politics, the power of theater--are being brought to life in college classrooms. The essays in part 2, "Approaches," are written by English and theater instructors who have taught in a variety of academic settings and cover topics including early modern homilies and music, Hollywood versions of The Taming of the Shrew, and student performances.

The late William Ringler, Jr. and James Ogden examine the theatrical tradition from Shakespeare's time to the nineteenth century. The history of literary criticism to Bradley and beyond is sketched in the introduction, and recent criticism is described in more detail by Richard Levin. Carol Rutter's essay on the women characters in the play is inspired partly by feminist criticism and partly by recent productions. The productions of the last thirty years are covered by theater critic Benedict Nightingale, and the major film versions by Anthony Davies and Stephen Phillips. Finally, Stuart Sillars presents a "visual history," an account of artistic responses that suggests further possibilities for both research and teaching.

This collection demonstrates the diversity of contemporary feminist scholarship in early modern studies. With an introduction by Jean E. Howard, and essays by Rackin's former students Wendy Wall, Kim F. Hall, Lisa A. Freeman, Will Fisher, Peter Parolin, Sarah Werner, Julie Crawford, Rebecca Ann Bach, and Gwynne Kennedy, and Rackin's long-time colleague, Barbara Hodgdon, the volume covers a range of subjects of interest to early modern scholars and their students. Essays on domesticity, sexuality, masculinity, women writers, pedagogy, and performance push issues central to Rackin's scholarship in significant new directions. The introduction emphasizes Rackin's commitment to feminism in both her scholarship and academic life, as it surveys her important contributions to Shakespeare studies. Several essays consider domesticity as a source of women's empowerment. Peter Parolin compares The Taming of the Shrew, where Kate's "taming" entails her removal from food production, and The Knight of the Burning Pestle, where Nell gains authority from it. Wendy Wall draws connections between early modern women's writing practices and the housewife's task of carving. Kim F. Hall examines English women's involvement in the production and consumption of sugar and in the institutionalization of African slavery. Contrasting the views of Othello's passion held by early modern and eighteenth-century critics, Rebecca Ann Bach traces both the emergence of heterosexual gender norms that situate men as active desiring subjects and women as passive objects and the centrality of race in their formulation. Will Fisher engages historical constructions of sexuality and gender by considering Celia and Rosalind in As You Like It as a homoerotic couple who refigure material practices associated with heterosexual marriage. Lisa A. Freeman and Julie Crawford focus on women writers. Freeman analyzes the paradoxical position of the public female intellectual, thought to possess a masculine mind but weak feminine body, through the strategies the bluestocking Elizabeth Carter adopts to resist and refigure this position. Crawford shows how Mary Wroth connects the sonnet with a lady's closet, as publicly private spaces, to address both a specific and a larger audience in her romance. Focusing on revenge tragedies, Gwynne Kennedy identifies strategies that discredit or minimize the legitimacy of the female character's revenge. Sarah Werner combines feminism, pedagogy, and editorial theory to show how Cordelia can introduce students to the multitext King Lear, the politics of editing, and the construction of gender. Barbara Hodgdon argues for a more expansive and interactive understanding of text, performance, and theory. Rebecca Ann Bach is Professor of English at the University of Alabama-Birmingham. Gwynne Kennedy is Associate Professor of English and Director of the Center for Women's Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Although he is considered to be the world's greatest dramatist, Shakespeare seems to have escaped the detection of thinkers on politics and the philosophic tradition of thought on man. Shakespeare's 'King Lear' with 'The Tempest' is Mark McDonald's inquiry into the political philosophy of William Shakespeare through a reading of King Lear with reference to The Tempest. McDonald follows an argument connecting King Lear to the question of natural right and to changes in the orders of the western world at the beginnings of modernity.

This book follows the recent ‘turn to religion’ that has been so important to English Studies in the 21st century, and builds on many of the recent biographies of Shakespeare that have explored the playwright’s religious views. While noticing biography, the focus of this book is upon the onstage action of King Lear, arguing that its ‘theodicy’ can be understood as the expansion of theological vision. The book makes this argument by drawing on an approach to literature known as ‘theological aesthetics,’ an approach pioneered by Hans Urs Von Balthasar. Engaging with not only W.R. Elton, but also other Shakespeare scholars such as Jan Kott and Kenneth Muir, it combines theological argument, performance criticism, and dramatic analysis to argue for a theological reading of King Lear.

Religious issues and discourse are key to an understanding of Shakespeare's plays and poems. This dictionary discusses over 1000 words and names in Shakespeare's works that have a religious connotation. Its unique word-by-word approach allows equal consideration of the full nuance of each of these words, from 'abbess' to 'zeal'. It also gradually reveals the persistence, the variety, and the sophistication of Shakespeare's religious usage. Frequent attention is given to the prominence of Reformation controversy in these words, and to Shakespeare's often ingenious and playful metaphoric usage of them. Theological commonplaces assume a major place in the dictionary, as do overt references to biblical figures, biblical stories and biblical place-names; biblical allusions; church figures and saints.
