Faith and Folly in Shakespeare's Romantic Comedies

Full Product Description

An enduring debate among scholars has focused on the degree to which Shakespeare's plays are indebted to the Christian culture in which they were created and the manner of demonstrating that indebtedness. R. Chris Hassel, Jr. points out informed allusions to familiar Pauline and Erasmian Christian passages and themes present in "Love's Labor's Lost, " "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Much Ado about Nothing," "As You Like It, " "Twelfth Night," and "The Merchant of Venice." He argues that not only did Shakespeare's audience understand these allusions but also that these allusions led the audience to recognize their pertinence to the playwright's uniquely Christian comic vision. Furthermore, Hassel feels this understanding of the relationship between Shakespeare's comic artistry and Christianity leads to a greater appreciation of the plays.

Faith and Folly in Shakespeare's Romantic Comedies by R Chris Hassel Jr was published by University of Georgia Press in May 2011. The ISBN for Faith and Folly in Shakespeare's Romantic Comedies is 9780820338538.
