These eight essays by leading Shakespeare scholars explore the ways in which the Christian tradition intersects Shakespearean drama. Recognizing that post-modern methods of criticism pose new questions, the contributors challenge scholars to explore thoughtfully their implications in the studying and teaching of Shakespeare. They examine particular post-modern methods, and scrutinize ways in which they may enlarge understanding and offer illumination of dramas. Insisting that a sense of history is essential in a scholarly examination of Shakespearean drama, the book seeks to demonstrate how the Christian tradition may be studied and taught in the classroom.
