about

Shakespeare continues to articulate the central problems of our intellectual inheritance. The plays of a Renaissance playwright still seem to be fundamental to our understanding and experience of modernity.
Key philosophical questions concerning value, meaning and justice continue to resonate in Shakespeare's work. In the course of rethinking these issues,Philosophical Shakespearesactively encourages the growing dissolution of boundaries between literature and philosophy. The approach throughout is interdisciplinary, and ranges from problem-centred readings of particular plays to more general elaborations of the significance of Shakespeare in relation to individual thinkers or philosophical traditions.
John Joughin is Senior lecturer in English at the University of Central Lancashire. He is editor ofShakespeare and National Culture(1997).

Copeland Professor of Literary History, University of Massachusetts, Amherst "Accents on Shakespeare is shaping up as everything a streetwise series of books on the Bard should be: engaged, imaginative, heretical and occasionally outrageous. No one who aims to have their finger on the pulse of Shakespeare studies can afford to ignore it."-Kiernan Ryan Professor of English, Royal Holloway, University of London and Fellow of New Hall, University of Cambridge ..."moments of illumination...."-Rain Taxi
