Shakespeare and Violence

Cover
Cambridge University Press, 2003 - 224 Seiten
Shakespeare's last plays present a world in which human violence appears analogous to violence in the natural world, and both kinds of violence are shown as aspects of a world subject to chance and accident. This book is the first to examine the development of Shakespeare's representations of violence and to explain their importance in shaping his career as a dramatist."--BOOK JACKET.
