Graham Bradshaw, Misrepresentations: Shakespeare and the Materialists

Bradshaw, Graham (Fellow, 1989-90)

Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 1993

From the publisher's description:

Just at the moment when conflicts between critical "isms" are threatening to turn the study of English literature into a game park for endangered texts, Bradshaw arrives with a work of liberating wit and insight. His subject is double: the Shakespeare he reads and the Shakespeare whom critics in the ranks of the new historicists and cultural materialists are representing (or misrepresenting).

Subjects: Theater; British Literature; English Literature; Cultural History; Satire; Materialism
