Shakespeare's Anti-Politics : Sovereign Power and the Life of the Flesh, Hardback Book

Shakespeare's Anti-Politics : Sovereign Power and the Life of the Flesh Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Shakespeare Studies series

Description

Argues that Shakespeare is anti-political, dissecting the nature of the nation-state and charting a surprising form of resistance to it, using sovereign power against itself to engineer new forms of selfhood and relationality that escape the orbit of the nation-state.

It is these new experiences that the book terms 'the life of the flesh'.
