Shakespeare, love and service by David Schalkwyk( )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 1,385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peter Laslett's comment, in The World We Have Lost, that in the early modern period, "every relationship could be seen as a love-relationship" presents the governing idea of this book. In an analysis that includes Shakespeare's sonnets and a wide range of his plays from The Comedy of Errors to The Winter's Tale, David Schalkwyk looks at the ways in which the personal, affective relations of love are informed by the social, structural interactions of service. Showing that service is not a "class" concept but rather that it determined the fundamental conditions of identity across the whole society, the book explores the interpenetration of structure and affect in relationships as varied as monarch and subject, aristocrat and personal servant, master and slave, husband and wife, and lover and beloved in light of differences of rank, gender, and sexual identity."--Jacket

David Shalkwyk uses the circulation of the so-called 'Robben Island Shakespeare', a copy of the Alexander edition of the Complete Works that was secretly circulated, annotated and signed by a group of Robben Island political prisoner in the 1970s (including Nelson Mandela), to examine the representation and experience of imprisonment in South African prison memoirs and Shakespeare's Hamlet.

The Cambridge companion to Shakespeare's language by Lynne Magnusson( Book )

7 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The power of Shakespeare's complex language - his linguistic playfulness, poetic diction and dramatic dialogue - inspires and challenges students, teachers, actors and theatre-goers across the globe. It has iconic status and enormous resonance, even as language change and the distance of time render it more opaque and difficult. The Cambridge Companion to Shakespeare's Language provides important contexts for understanding Shakespeare's experiments with language and offers accessible approaches to engaging with it directly and pleasurably. Incorporating both practical analysis and exemplary readings of Shakespearean passages, it covers elements of style, metre, speech action and dialogue; examines the shaping contexts of rhetorical education and social language; test-drives newly available digital methodologies and technologies; and considers Shakespeare's language in relation to performance, translation and popular culture. The Companion explains the present state of understanding while identifying opportunities for fresh discovery, leaving students equipped to ask productive questions and try out innovative methods"--

Literature and the touch of the real by David Schalkwyk( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rather, the broader context of this claim shows that the reduction of the world from language is in fact one of Derrida's earliest philosophical targets. By examining the polemics concerning the term "apartheid" and J.L. Austin's philosophy of speech acts, and Derrida's essays on the proper name in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and James Joyce, it argues that Derrida maintains a sophisticated and critical view of the relationship among words, concepts, and things in the world that may be related to Saul Kripke's "causal" theory of reference, developed within the analytical tradition of philosophy."
