Shakespeare's noise

Author: Kenneth Gross
Publisher: Chicago : University of Chicago Press, ©2001.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English
Summary:
Gross explores the playright's fascination with dangerous and disorderly forms of utterance -- rumor, slander, insult, vituperation, and curse -- and how this generates an immense verbal energy in the poetry and on the stage. More broadly, it also reflects a cultural obsession with the power of defamation in Renaissance England.
