Inhaltsangabe: The plays of Shakespeare's second tetralogy "Richard II", "Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2" and "Henry V" - are performed more frequently than any of the other history plays, and their three kings, thanks to Shakespeare, are among the most renowned in English history. "Theater and World" examines the theoretical and interpretive problems posed by the four plays. As he probes the complex relationships between drama and history, Jonathan Hart places his work in a wide critical context, from early Shakespearean critics to deconstructionalists and new historicists.
From Library Journal:
Hart brings contemporary literary theory to bear on interpretative problems posed by Shakespeare's second tetralogy: Richard II, 1 Henry IV, 2 Henry IV, and Henry V. Hart argues that for Shakespeare, the meaning of historical events, as well as cause-and-effect relations, are continually elusive. Central to Hart's thesis is that language, in a world conceived as fallen, cannot correspond to the world described; characters therefore fail to communicate, having differing notions of kingship, god, authority, and rebellion. This can be seen in the frequent occurrence of self-trapping images. Hart also explores the problems of writing history for the stage, discussing anachronism, telescoping, invention, and self-conscious theatricality. Finally, Hart focuses on Henry V as a problem play that questions its own generic structure, suggesting instability when order is most called for. For specialized collections.
