An Analysis of Stephen Greenblatt's Renaissance Self-Fashioning : From More to Shakespeare, Paperback / softback Book

An Analysis of Stephen Greenblatt's Renaissance Self-Fashioning : From More to Shakespeare Paperback / softback

Part of the The Macat Library series

Description

What is a self? Greenblatt argues that the 16th century saw the awakening of modern self-consciousness, the ability to fashion an identity out of the culture and politics of one's society.

In a series of brilliant readings, Greenblatt shows how identity is constructed in the work of Shakespeare, Marlowe, Spenser and other Renaissance writers.

A classic piece of literary criticism, and the origins of the New Historicist school of thought, Renaissance Self-Fashioning remains a critical and challenging text for readers of Renaissance literature.
