Reading Shakespeare Historically by Lisa Jardine

Book Description

Reading Shakespeare Historically is a passionate, provocative book by one of the most renowned and popular Renaissance scholars writing today. Charting ten years of critical development, these challenging, witty essays shed new light on Renaissance studies. It also raises intriguing questions about how the culture and history of the past illuminates the key social and political issues of today. Lisa Jardine re-reads Renaissance drama in its historical and cultural context, from laws of defamation in Othello to the competing loyalties of companionate marriage and male friendship in The Changeling. In doing so she reveals a wealth of new insights, sometimes surprising but always original and engrossing. At the same time, these essays also provide a fascinating account of the rise of feminist scholarship since the 1980s and the diversifying of 'new historicist' approaches over the same period. Reading Shakespeare Historically will fascinate and provoke students of shakespeare and his historical age, and general readers with an urge to understand how the culture and history of our past illuminates the key scoial and political issues of today.

Literatures of Exile in the English Revolution and its Aftermath by Lisa Jardine Literatures of Exile in the English Revolution and its Aftermath, Hardback (October 2010)

Focuses on an important yet understudied feature of seventeenth-century England's political and cultural landscape: exile. Through an essentially literary lens, this title examines exile both as physical departure from England - to France, Germany, the Low Countries and America - and as inner, mental withdrawal.

Francis Bacon: Discovery and the Art of Discourse by Lisa Jardine Francis Bacon: Discovery and the Art of Discourse, Paperback (June 2009)
