Shakespeare and Politics : What a Sixteenth-Century Playwright Can Tell Us about Twenty-First-Century Politics Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

William Shakespeare, more than any other author, was able to capture the essence of human nature in all its manifestations.

His political plays offer enduring insights into our humanity, our vanity, our noble and baser drives, what makes us great, and what makes us loathsome.

He tells us about ourselves and about our world. This volume gleans valuable lessons from the writings of William Shakespeare and applies them to contemporary politics. Original chapters covering over a dozen different plays take up perennial political themes including power and leadership, corruption and virtue, war and peace, evil and liberty, persuasion and polarization, and empire and global overreach.Features of the text:
