about

Tartamella casts new light on seemingly quite familiar material—Shakespeare’s Sonnets and a number of his plays, including Hamlet, The Taming of the Shrew, and Antony and Cleopatra. By placing the Sonnets within the context of the literary history of praise poetry, and exploring the underlying influence of early modern skepticism on Shakespeare’s writing, this book truly enhances our understanding of the subtleties and complexities in all of Shakespeare’s work.

Suzanne M. Tartamella is assistant professor of English at Henderson State University and previously taught at Gettysburg College. Her work has previously appeared in English Literary Renaissance; this is her first book.

Editorial Reviews

“Rather than looking at Shakespeare’s religious doubt, Tartamella is concerned with Shakespeare’s skepticism regarding the natural goodness of humankind. The research and learning of the study are commendable, the writing is professional, and the insights are welcome. . . . Recommended. All readers.” —Choice
