Shakespeare and Historical Formalism
Ashgate, 2007 - Literary Criticism - 242 pages
Located at the intersection of new historicism and the new formalism, historical formalism is one of the most rapidly growing and important movements in early modern studies, addressing at once the theoretical challenges posed by history and form. Applying historical formalism to Shakespeare's works, the essays in this collection bring history to formalism and form to historicism, inviting scholars to rethink the familiar critical, pedagogical, and epistemological categories and assumptions of formal and historical criticism.
