Virtue's Own Feature: Shakespeare and the Virtue Ethics Tradition
University of Delaware Press, 1995 - 260 Seiten
"Using an historical approach, Virtue's Own Feature explores nine of Shakespeare's most successful works as representations of the passions, virtues, and vices as they are complexly and extensively set out by Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas." "The work first undertakes to describe the late Elizabethan poetic of Sir Philip Sidney, which is demonstrated to be Shakespeare's poetic as well. Second, this study explores Shakespeare's plays in relation to the Aristotelian-Thomistic tradition of moral philosophy, one important branch of a major sixteenth-century philosophical tradition."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
