Notes
  • Much Ado About Nothing and The Taming of the Shrew are two of Shakespeare's most exciting and challenging comedies. The essays collected here offer various ways of interpreting them. The range of approaches covers traditional close reading, feminism, New Historicism, deconstruction and Marxism, as well as including essays on both stage and film productions of the plays. The plays are thus contextualised both historically and in terms of Shakespeare's canon. The introduction discusses the key conscepts focused on by the specific essays, and offers a way of negotiating the wide array of insightful and scholarly material collected in this New Casebook. New Casebooks bring together the best of contemporary criticism and new critical thinking, illuminating the rich interchange between modern critical theory and practice that characterises the current discussion of literature. New Casebooks complement the original Casebook series, which offers criticism inspired by the text throughout its history.
  • Includes bibliographical references (p. 251-253) and index.
