Product Description

Review

"This is a fine book. An important and original contribution to feminist Shakespeare studies." Phyllis Rackin, University of Pennsylvania "This is a fresh book, which will have an invigorating effect on Shakespeare studies. Nothing quite like it exists, and I imagine a wide audience among Shakespeare scholars and students." Jean Howard, Columbia University

From the Back Cover

In this fresh alternative to traditional Shakespeare studies, Dympna Callaghan, Lorraine Helms, and Jyotsna Singh address Shakespeare′s works in terms of, amongst other things, the feminist history of sexuality, the ideology of romantic love, and feminist interventions in performance. Their objective is to produce new interpretations of the plays by locating them at the intersections of a range of contemporary critical, theoretical, and cultural practices. Drawing on cultural history, psychoanalysis, and performance, the authors provide a materialist feminist account of Shakespeare which attempts to expand the terrain of political approaches to the interpretation of Shakespeare. They write collaboratively, believing that through collaboration they begin to re–define scholarship as a communal enterprise rather than as an isolated, apolitical act.
