Shakespeare's Villains, Hardback Book

Shakespeare's Villains Hardback


Shakespeare's Villains is a close reading of Shakespeare's plays to investigate the nature of evil.

Charney closely considers the way that dramatic characters are developed in terms of language, imagery, and nonverbal stage effects.

With chapters on Iago, Tarquin, Aaron, Richard Duke of Gloucester, Shylock, Claudius, Polonius, Macbeth, Edmund, Goneril, Regan, Angelo, Tybalt, Don John, Iachimo, Lucio, Julius Caesar, Leontes, and Duke Frederick, this book is the first comprehensive study of the villains in Shakespeare.
