Shakespeare and the Bible

Steven Marx

Oxford Shakespeare Topics

This is the first book to explore the pattern and significance of Biblical references in relation to a selection of his greatest plays. It reveals that the Bible inspired Shakespeare's uses of myth, history, comedy, and tragedy, his techniques of staging, and his ways of characterizing rulers, magicians and teachers in the image of the Bible's multifaceted God.
