Shakespeare's Rhetoric of Comic Character by Karen Newman

Book Description

First published in 1985. In this revisionist history of comic characterization, Karen Newman argues that, contrary to received opinion, Shakespeare was not the first comic dramatist to create self-conscious characters who seem 'lifelike' or 'realistic'. His comic practice is firmly set within a comic tradition which stretches from Plautus and Menander to playwrights of the Italian Renaissance.

Cultural Capitals by Karen Newman Cultural Capitals, Paperback (July 2009)

Demonstrates that speculation and capital, the commodity, the crowd, traffic, and the street, often thought to be historically specific to nineteenth-century urban culture, were in fact already at work in early modern London and Paris. This title challenges the notion of a rupture between premodern and modern societies.

Time and the Literary by Karen Newman Time and the Literary, Paperback (July 2002)

From eleventh-century France to a science-fiction future, Time and the Literary shows how these two concepts have been and will continue to influence each other.
