The Romantic Cult Of Shakespeare

£80.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Focusing on England, Hungary and on some other European countries, this book by the literary historian Péter Dávidházi explores the latent religious patterns in the appropriation of Shakespeare from the 1769 Stratford Jubilee to the tercentenary of Shakespeare's birth in 1864. It shows how the Shakespeare cult used quasi-religious (verbal and ritual) means of reverence, how it made use of some romantic notions, and how the ensuing quasi-transcendental authority was utilized for political purposes. The book suggests a theoretical framework and a comprehensive anthropological context for the interpretation of literature.
In very good condition, with just some very light shelf wear to the back cover dust-jacket. This copy signed and dedicated by the author!
