We are often told that Shakespeare is our contemporary, yet we insist just as often on the Elizabethan quality of his work as it reflects a culture remote from our own. Beginning with this paradox, Howard Felperin explores the question of modernity in literature. He directs his attention toward several older poets and examines Shakespeare in particular to show how literary modernity depends, not on chronological considerations, but on the process of mimesis, or imitation, that art has traditionally claimed for itself. In analyzing Shakespeare's major tragedies, Professor Felperin notes that each carries within it a model of its dramatic prototypes, and therefore requires a conservative response from its interpreters. In the interest of being truer to life than its model, however, each play departs from that model and so requires a Romantic or modernist response as well. The author contends that Shakespeare's meaning arises from this ambivalent relation to the forms of the past. Originally published in 1978.

By connecting Shakespeare's language to the stunning artwork that depicted the end of the world, this study provides not only provides a new reading of Shakespeare but illustrates how apocalyptic art continues to influence popular culture today.Drawing on extant examples of medieval imagery, Roger Christofides uses poststructuralist and psychoanalytic accounts of how language works to shed new light on our understanding of Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, and King Lear. He then links Shakespeare's dependence on his audience to appreciate the allusions made to the religious paintings to the present day. For instance, popular television series like Battlestar Galactica, seminal horror movies such as An American Werewolf in London and Carrie and recent novels like Cormac McCarthy's The Road. All draw on imagery that can be traced directly back to the depictions of the Doom, an indication of the cultural power these vivid imaginings of the end of the world have in Shakespeare's day and now.

Oftenset in domestic environments and built around protagonists of more modeststatus than traditional tragic subjects, ‘domestic tragedy' was a genre thatflourished on the Renaissance stage from 1580-1620. Shakespeare, Othello, and Domestic Tragedyis the first book to examine Shakespeare's relationship to the genre by way ofthe King's and Chamberlain's Men's ownership and production of many of thedomestic tragedies, and of the genre's extensive influence on Shakespeare's owntragedy, Othello. Drawing in part upon recent scholarship thatidentifies Shakespeare as a co-author of Ardenof Faversham, Sean Benson demonstrates the extensive―even uncanny―tiesbetween Othello and the domestictragedies. Benson argues that just as Hamlet employs and adapts theconventions of revenge tragedy, so Othello can only be fully understoodin terms of its exploitation of the tropes and conventions of domestic tragedy.This book explores not only the contexts and workings of this popular sub-genreof Renaissance drama but also Othello's secure place within it as thequintessential example of the form.
