OXFORDSHAKESPEARETOPICS General Editors: Peter Holland and Stanley Wells OxfordShakespeare The topics provide students and teachers with short books on important aspects of Shakespeare's criticism and scholarship. Each book is written by the authority in its field, and combines the method of access with the original discussion of its subject.
This book traces Shakespeare's image to strangers in some of his most famous plays. Some of Shakespeare's most memorable characters are treated as outsiders in at least part of their plays - Othello, Shylock, Malcolio, Katherine ("Cheroy"), Edmund, Caliban, and many others.
Many of these personalities, who have been perceived as different and considered hostile by some in their community, have become symbols of collective identity. While many critics use the term "external", this is the first book that analyzes it as a relative identity rather than a static book, a position in which characters move and emerge, to show some characters that emphasize their place as a relative by the way they deal with them With others more than strangers, comparing foreign personalities, not only in terms of race and religion, but also in terms of sex, age, poverty, illegitimate birth, psychology, ethics, and other issues.
Are male characters who love other men from abroad for this reason in Shakespeare? How do women complain differently from strangers or racists? How can one compare the speeches of different outsiders for the rights of their group? Can you admire the outside? How and why plays change sympathy with or against strangers? How and why do similarities arise between strangers and the interior? With the chapters on the Merchant of Venice, the twelfth night, Othello, King Lear, The Tempest, and women as outsiders and foresight, this book looks at such questions with interest to recent historical research about the time of Shakespeare and the details of Shakespeare's language and plays on the stage and screen.
