New Perspectives on the Shakespearean World Summary


New Perspectives on the Shakespearean World by Richard Marienstras

Le Proche et Le Lointain (literally The Near and the Far) was first published in France in 1981, and this translation is available to English-speaking readers one of the most significant European contributions to Elizabethan cultural history to appear in recent years. In the conjunction - or conflict - of the 'near' and the 'far' Professor Marienstras discerns an underlying dichotomy of major importance to an understanding of the Shakespearean world. Othello, The Tempest and John Ford's 'Tis Pity She's a Whore are amongst the works discussed in detail in this highly imaginative series of inter-disciplinary studies, and the author sees in the juxtaposition of nature and culture, sacrifice and sacrilege, purity and impurity, nourishment and poison a structural opposition that renders unified and comprehensible thematic material at first sight random and meaningless.
