Two Concepts of Allegory by A. D. Nuttall
Book DescriptionThe fundamental subject of A. D. Nuttall's bold and daring first book, " Two Concepts of Allegory," is a particular habit of thought--the practice of thinking about universals as though they were concrete things. His study takes the form of an inquiry into certain conceptual questions raised, in the first place, by the allegorical critics of "The Tempest," and, in the second place, by allegorical and quasi-allegorical poetry in general. The argument has the further consequence of suggesting that allegory and metaphysics are in practice more closely allied than is commonly supposed. This paperback reissue includes a new preface by the author.

Shakespeare the Thinker, Paperback (March 2008)
Presents a study of Shakespeare's intellectual preoccupations. This book offers guidance to Shakespeare's plays and sheds light on questions that engrossed Shakespeare from his early plays to the late romances: the nature of motive, cause, personal identity and relation, the proper status of imagination, and ethics and subjectivity.
New Mimesis, Paperback (April 2007)
In pursuit of a common-sense argument about realism, this work discusses English 18th-century and French neo-classical conceptions of realism, and considers "Julius Caesar", "Coriolanus", "The Merchant of Venice", "Othello", and both parts of "King Henry IV" as a feat of mimesis, with emphasis on Shakespeare's perception of society and culture.
