Romance and Reformation: The Erasmian Spirit of Shakespeare's Measure for Measure

University of Delaware Press, 2000 - 189 σελίδες
"This book is an inquiry, through Measure for Measure, into Shakespeare's understanding of drama as a vehicle for social reform. It examines an assumption central to Shakespeare's inherited humanist tradition: that literature, and particularly drama, is capable of promoting a better society and it finds Shakespeare interrogating this assumption, asking whether drama that has been fashioned according to reformist principles of the great humanist educator Erasmus can, after all, achieve the remediating effects it seeks. Shakespeare explored this question in Measure for Measure at a time when the humanist consensus of roughly a century's duration in English culture seemed about to be eclipsed by a hardening of the positions of people who held opposing views on social issues."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
