Tyranny in Shakespeare - Applications of Political Theory 1 (Paperback)Mary Ann McGrail (author)
Paperback 192 Pages / Published: 19/07/2002
- We can order this
Even the most explicitly political contemporary approaches to Shakespeare have been uninterested by his tyrants as such. But for Shakespeare, rather than a historical curiosity or psychological aberration, tyranny is a perpetual political and human problem. Mary Ann McGrail's recovery of the playwright's perspective challenges the grounds of this modern critical silence. She locates Shakespeare's expansive definition of tyranny between the definitions accepted by classical and modern political philosophy.
