Shakespeare and Violence
Shakespeare and Violence connects to current anxieties about the problem of violence, and shows how similar concerns are central in Shakespeare's plays. At first he exploited spectacular violence for its entertainment value, but in later plays he explored a range of issues relating to war, heroism, manliness, and violence in nature as well as in human beings. This book is the first to examine the development of Shakespeare's representations of violence and to explain their importance in shaping his career as a dramatist.
