Death, Desire and Loss in Western Culture by Jonathan Dollimore

Book Description

Death, Desire and Loss in Western Culture is a rich testament to our ubiquitous preoccupation with the tangled web of death and desire. In these pages we find nuanced analysis that blends Plato with Shelley, Holderlin with Foucault. Dollimore, a gifted thinker, is not content to summarize these texts from afar; instead, he weaves a thread through each to tell the magnificent story of the making of the modern individual.

Books By Author Jonathan Dollimore

Radical Tragedy by Jonathan Dollimore Radical Tragedy, Paperback (April 2010)

Radical Tragedy is a landmark study of the drama of Shakespeare and his contemporaries and a classic of cultural materialist thought. The reissued third edition features a candid and inspiring new Preface by the author in which he explains his reasons for excluding Othello from his original discussion. The main text has also now been corrected.

Sex, Literature and Censorship by Jonathan Dollimore Sex, Literature and Censorship, Hardback (June 2001)

Those who love and live by art, tell us that it is the most exalted expression of civilized life. In this provocative new book Jonathan Dollimore argues that, far from confirming humane values, literature more often than not violates them.

Death, Desire and Loss in Western Culture by Jonathan Dollimore Death, Desire and Loss in Western Culture, Hardback (September 1998)

This strikingly original work is a testament to our preoccupation with death and desire. An immensely important book, this challenges the way we understand desire, sexuality, and the notion of identity.

Political Shakespeare by Jonathan Dollimore Political Shakespeare, Paperback (August 1994)

This work sets out to depose the sacred icon of the "eternal bard" and argue for a Shakespeare who meditates and exploits political, cultural and ideological forces. Ten years on, this second edition presents additional essays by Jonathan Dollimore and Alan Sinfield.
