The subject of stage directions in 'Hamlet', those brief semiotic codes that are embellished by historical, theatrical, and cultural considerations, produces a rigorous examination in the fifteen essays contained in this collection. This volume encompasses essays that are guardedly inductive in their critical approaches, as well as those that critique modern productions that attempt to achieve Shakespearean effect through a modern aesthetic. The volume also includes essays that enunciate the production of stage business as a cultural interplay between productions and social agencies outside the theater.

Forensic Shakespeare illustrates Shakespeare's creative processes by revealing the intellectual materials out of which some of his most famous works were composed. Focusing on the narrative poem Lucrece, on four of his late Elizabethan plays (Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice, Julius Caesar and Hamlet) and on three early Jacobean dramas, (Othello, Measure for Measure and All's Well That Ends Well), Quentin Skinner argues that major speeches, and sometimes sequences of scenes, are crafted according to a set of rhetorical precepts about how to develop a persuasive judicial case, either in accusation or defence. Some of these works have traditionally been grouped together as 'problem plays', but here Skinner offers a different explanation for their frequent similarities of tone. There have been many studies of Shakespeare's rhetoric, but they have generally concentrated on his wordplay and use of figures and tropes. By contrast, this study concentrates on Shakespeare's use of judicial rhetoric as a method of argument. By approaching the plays from this perspective, Skinner is able to account for some distinctive features of Shakespeare's vocabulary, and also help to explain why certain scenes follow a recurrent pattern and arrangement. More broadly, he is able to illustrate the extent of Shakespeare's engagement with an entire tradition of classical and Renaissance humanist thought.

(Applause Books). If there ever has been a groundbreaking edition that likewise returns the reader to the original Shakespeare text, it will be the Applause Folio Texts. If there has ever been an accessible version of the Folio, it is this edition, set for the first time in modern fonts. The Folio is the source of all other editions. The Folio text forces us to re-examine the assumptions and prejudices which have encumbered over four hundred years of scholarship and performance. Notes refer the reader to subsequent editorial interventions, and offer the reader a multiplicity of interpretations. Notes also advise the reader on variations between Folios and Quartos. The heavy mascara of four centuries of Shakespearean glossing has by now glossed over the original countenance of Shakespeare's work. Never has there been a Folio available in modern reading fonts. While other complete Folio editions continue to trade simply on the facsimile appearance of the Elizabethan "look," none of them is easily and practically utilized in general Shakespeare studies or performances.

Um den Mörder zu überführen und seine Rache vorzubereiten, gibt Hamlet vor, wahnsinnig zu sein. Hamlet lauert seinem Onkel auf und ersticht irrtümlich den Oberkämmerer Polonius. Dessen Sohn Laertes fordert, unterstützt von Claudius, Hamlet zum Duell. Hamlet siegt verwundet und ersticht Claudius, bevor er schließlich selbst stirbt.

四個世紀以來,莎士比亞戲劇的舞台演出以及詮釋注疏,見證了各個時代的劇場風尚和文學品味;每一種理論、每一個學派,無論是滾滾長江或是涓涓細流,都各自挾帶著或多或少或大或小的洞見與偏見,同奔莎士比亞研究的浩瀚大海;「莎士比亞工業」早已成形。 在莎士比亞三十多齣劇本中,《哈姆雷》一劇情文並茂,最受青睞。表面上,羶色腥作品的主要成分一應俱全:鬼魂、謀殺、懸疑、政治、權術、亂倫、情愛、復仇、間諜、瘋癲、武打……。而在更深層處,它所探討的人生種種:生與死、善與惡、真與假、復仇與寬恕、天命與人力……又都是亙古以來哲人企圖尋求答案的問題。 劇中人物範圍廣闊,上自國王、廷臣,下至演員、掘墓人;主線哈姆雷的復仇故事以外另設多條副線,大戲之中涵括多個小戲,不僅結構多元,語言層次更是複雜。而在莎士比亞筆下,各個角色、各式情緒、各種場景的描繪無不入木三分。無怪乎《哈姆雷》是文壇最大的市集:貨色齊全,都有保單和商標。 這本新譯《哈姆雷》字斟句酌,特別注重語言和戲劇的密切關係,力求保持原作多采多姿的風貌。書中〈緒論〉引經據典,詳實可靠,文字深入淺出,適合研究參考,更是本劇的最佳導讀。

To be, or not to be-that is the question. Perhaps Shakespeare's greatest tragedy, Hamlet is a masterpiece of Elizabethan theater. In this classic, the Prince of Denmark is torn by the choices he must make to revenge the murder of his father, who has returned to him as a ghost. By emphasizing the emotional and moral dilemma facing the introspective Hamlet, Shakespeare elevates the drama above a simple revenge story. The themes of this brilliant work-those of love, family, betrayal, madness, and death-have continued to resonate with audiences throughout the centuries. This beautifully repackaged Signet Classic edition includes an extensive overview of Shakespeare's life, world, and theater, along with a special introduction to the play, a note on the three early texts, and sources from which the character of Hamlet was derived. Also included are dramatic criticism from the past and present, a comprehensive stage and screen history of notable productions, an up-to-date list of recommended readings, and a DVD of the BBC adaptation. DVD INCLUDES: The BBC Television Shakespeare production of Hamlet, starring Patrick Stewart and Tony Award winner Derek Jacobi.

Lacan and the Destiny of Literature

In contemporary academic literary studies, Lacan is often considered impenetrably obscure, due to the unavailability of his late works, insufficient articulation of his methodologies and sometimes stereotypical use of Lacanian concepts in literary theory. This study aims to integrate Lacan into contemporary literary study by engaging with a broad range of Lacanian theoretical concepts, often for the first time in English, and using them to analyse a range of key texts from different periods. Azari explores Lacan's theory of desire as well as his final theories of lituraterre, littoral, and the sinthome and interrogates a range of poststructuralist interpretive approaches. In the second part of the book, he outlines the variety of ways in which Lacanian theory can be applied to literary texts and offers detailed readings of texts by Shakespeare, Donne, Joyce and Ashbery. This ground-breaking study provides original insights into a number of the most influential intellectual discussions in relation to Lacan and will fill a recognised gap in understanding Lacan and his legacy for literary study and criticism.
