Book Description

Alternative Shakespeares, published in 1985, shook up the world of Shakespearean studies, demythologising Shakespeare and applying new theories to the study of his work. Alternative Shakespeares: Volume 2 investigates Shakespearean criticism over a decade later, introducing new debates and new theorists into the frame.
Both established scholars and new names appear here, providing a broad cross-section of contemporary Shakespearean studies, including psychoanalysis, sexual and gender politics, race and new historicism.
Alternative Shakespeares: Volume 2 represents the forefront of contemporary Shakespearean studies. This urgently-needed addition to a classic work of literary criticism is one which teachers and scholars will welcome.
