sinopsis

Nuttall, who died earlier this year, and who trained in both philosophy and literature, here traces ideas about motivation, identity, speech, and symbol in Shakespeare’s plays. His study is rich in unexpected juxtapositions: Hippolyta, of "A Midsummer Night’s Dream," finds herself in casual conversation with David Hume, and Titus Andronicus is seen in the context of "Goodfellas." The analysis never pulls too far away from the action onstage; indeed, Nuttall painstakingly shows Shakespeare’s skill at negotiating abstract ideas through suspense, conflict, and character. For example, he observes, Shakespeare often uses minor characters who form "islands" in the drama to think through philosophical ideas. The Shakespeare who emerges here is a "systematically elusive" intelligence, whose brilliance lay in his ability to join "verisimilitude to wonder."
