Shakespeare, Machiavelli, and Montaigne: Power and Subjectivity from Richard II to Hamlet

Voorkant
Oxford University Press, 2002 - 286 pagina's
The four plays of Shakespeare's Henriad and the slightly later Hamlet brilliantly explore interconnections between political power and interior subjectivity as productions of the newly emerging constellation we call modernity. Hugh Grady argues that for Shakespeare subjectivity was a critical, negative mode of resistance to power--not, as many recent critics have asserted, its abettor.
