Shakespeare and the reason; a study of the tragedies and the problem plays by Terence Hawkes( Book )

31 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Mr Hawkes is a good critic, oriented towards history of ideas. He operates on the formula that Shakespeare was interested in the available distinctions between discursive and intuitive reason, and disliked a growing tendency for the first to be thought of as manly and the second effeminate. One sees how this action-contemplation polarity works, in Hamlet for instance, and Mr Hawkes thinks the kind of choices forced on tragic heroes can be better understood in terms of it.' Frank Kermode, New Statesman. In the seven plays on which the book concentrates, Terenc
Shakespeare's talking animals; language and drama in society by Terence Hawkes( Book )

20 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1973, this book is about Shakespeare, language and drama. The first part introduces some common ideas of anthropology and linguistics into an area where they serve as a base for the discussion of usually literary matters. It attempts to link language to our experience of speech — examining its range, texture, and social functions. In part two, the author argues that in Elizabethan culture there was a greater investment in the complexities and demands of speech due to the widespread illiteracy of the time. It examines eight of Shakespeare's plays, together with one of Ben Jonson's, in light of their concern with various aspects of the role of spoken language in society. -- Preliminary page [1]
That Shakespeherian rag : essays on a critical process by Terence Hawkes( Book )

19 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1986. This collection of essays focuses on the ways in which our society 'processes' Shakespeare and the purposes for which this seems to be done. The case is made by examining the work of four highly influential critics: A C Bradley, Walter Raleigh, T S Eliot and John Dover Wilson. Terence Hawkes asks whether, beyond the readings to which the plays may be subjected, there lies any final, authoritative or essential meaning to which we can ultimately turn, concluding that jazz music offers the most fruitful model for twentieth-century criticism
Meaning by Shakespeare by Terence Hawkes( Book )

18 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We traditionally assume that the `meaning' of each of Shakespeares plays is bequeathed to it by the Bard. It is as if, to the information which used to be given in theatrical programmes, `Cigarettes by Abdullah, Costumes by Motley, Music by Mendelssohn', we should add `Meaning by Shakespeare'. These essays rest on a different, almost opposite, principle. Developing the arguments of the same author's That Shakespearean Rag (1986), they put the case that Shakespeare's plays have no essential meanings, but function as resources which we use to generate meaning. A Midsummer Night'
Shakespeare in the present by Terence Hawkes( Book )

17 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare in the Present is a collection of essays by Terence Hawkes, which engage with, explain and explore 'presentism'. Presentism is a critical manoeuvre that uses relevant aspects of the contemporary as a crucial trigger for its investigations. It deliberately begins with the material present and lets that set the interrogative agenda. This book suggests ways in which its principles may be applied to aspects of Shakespeare's plays."--Jacket
