Shakespeare at Peace, Paperback / softback Book

Description

In the current climate of global military conflict and terrorism, Shakespeare at Peace offers new readings of Shakespeare's plays, illuminating a discourse of peace previously shadowed by war and violence.

Using contemporary examples such as speeches, popular music, and science fiction adaptations of the plays, Shakespeare at Peace reads Shakespeare's work to illuminate current debates and rhetoric around conflict and peace.

In this challenging and evocative book, Garrison and Pivetti re-frame Shakespeare as a proponent of peace, rather than war, and suggest new ways of exploring the vitality of Shakespeare's work for politics today.
