Shakespeare's tragedies - the plays which represent human experience in its starkest and most terrifying dimensions - are crucial to the postmodern study of early modern subjectivity. In this collection of ground-breaking essays, eminent Shakespearean scholars examine ten of these tragedies through a variety of postmodern frameworks: historical, linguistic and psychoanalytical. Although each essay presents an original perspective on one of Shakespeare's tragedies, the collection taken as a whole reveals the interdependence of these new critical approaches. The editor's introduction discusses key issues that link the essays, as well as aspects of postmodern theory that have particular relevance to Shakespeare's tragedies.
