Shakespeare on love & lust by Maurice Charney ( )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 2,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The complex and sometimes contradictory expressions of love in Shakespeare's works - ranging from the serious to the absurd and back again - arise primarily from his dramatic and theatrical flair rather than from a unified philosophy of love. Untangling his witty, bawdy (and ambiguous) treatment of love, sex, and desire requires a sharp eye and a steady hand. In Shakespeare on Love & Lust, Maurice Charney delves deeply into Shakespeare's rhetorical and thematic development of this largest of subjects to reveal what makes his plays and poems resonate with contemporary audiences."--BOOK JACKET

In All of Shakespeare, Maurice Charney, former president of the Shakespeare Association of America, provides a play by play, poem by poem, guide to all of Shakespeare's works. In forty-three succinct and lucid chapters, Charney brings to life every play, from The Comedy of Errors to The Tempest, in addition to the long poems and the Sonnets. Charney emphasizes that we need to look at Shakespeare not so much as a Renaissance thinker but as a dramatist, a poet, and a creator of fictions. Emphasizing style and character development as opposed to ideology, Charney's commentary, which rests on forty years of teaching and writing about Shakespeare, illuminates the countless interconnections among the plays and poems

""But in a fiction, in a dream of passion..."" In an extended commentary on this passage this book offers a rationale for the excellence and primacy of this play among the tragedies. Throughout, emphasis is placed on Hamlet's fantasies and imaginations rather than on ethical criteria, and on the depiction of Hamlet as a revenge play through an exploration of its dark and mysterious aspects.The book stresses the importance of Passion and Its Fictions in the play and attempts to explore the very Pirandellian topic of Hamlet's passion and dream of passion. It goes on to examine
