n Shakespeare in Southern Africa - Shakespearean Fantasy and Politics, Thomas Betteridge : book review

Volume 20, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1011-582X

For this is a conservative book, a detailed reading of a selection of Shakespeare's plays arguing for a coherent authorial vision and ethical scheme. It is also however complex, reasoned, and guided by the impetus to theorise and exemplify what Betteridge calls "ethical criticism".
