Show Summary Details


Widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and perhaps in the world, Shakespeare holds enduring interest for scholars and general readers for his insight into human passions, his reflections on political greatness and failure, and his perceptions of the varieties of social, domestic, and sexual relationships and resolutions; as such, Shakespeare has been the subject of intense and varied critical study. This highly selective entry attempts to organize those studies into meaningful categories of interest: biography, ideas, cultural practices, gender, politics, religion, style and language, performance history, and more.
