About this product
- DescriptionShakespeare lived in a world of absolutes - the absolute authority claimed for God over the world, for the holy scriptures over the faithful, monarchs over subjects, fathers over wives and children, men over women. This book shows that Shakespeare was averse to such absolute claims and constantly probed the possibility of freedom from them.
- Author BiographyStephen Greenblatt is the John Cogan University Professor of the Humanities at Harvard University. He is the author of Will in the World: How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare, Hamlet in Purgatory, and the groundbreaking Renaissance Self-Fashioning, the last published by the University of Chicago Press.
