Shakespeare

Author(s): Germaine Greer

Shakespeare

"[T]his slim volume...is committed to a description of Shakespeare's thought as it is evinced in the works which he has left us." Noted feminist and internationally bestselling author Germaine Greer explores Shakespeare as a thinker, unraveling the methods he used to dramatize moral and intellectual issues. Her astute and highly original look at the Bard covers his life, his poetics and politics, his characters (especially his "passionate and pure" females), his audience, and his theater--all placed in the larger context of Elizabethan society and culture. As long as Shakespeare's work remains central to the English-speaking world, Greer concludes, it will retain the values that make it unique.
