Shakespeare's dilemmas

by Richard Horwich | 01 April 1988
Hardback
Category: Performing Arts
Synopsis
The dilemma-torn hero - paralyzed between alternatives so precisely balanced that no rational basis can be found for choosing one or the other - dates back to Homer and forward to Joseph Heller. Of the dozens of writers who created such figures, none employed dilemmas more extensively or more variously than William Shakespeare; Hamlet, pondering whether To be, or not to be, is only the best-known of many characters in the plays who find themselves in that peculiar predicament. Horwich shows how Shakespeare's dilemmas, which he calls the classic predicament of an age suffused with philosophical subjectivity and emotional ambivalence, cut across the boundaries of dramatic genre and subject matter, illuminating such disparate works as the problem comedies, the Roman plays, and the great political and romantic tragedies.
