Derrida Reads Shakespeare

Chiara Alfano

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Shakespeare and Philosophy

  • Offers the first comprehensive and accessible account and discussion of Derrida's engagement with Shakespeare
  • Challenges the way we have traditionally come to think about the interdisciplinary relationship between literature and philosophy, as well as literary genius
  • Contextualises Derrida's readings of Shakespeare within his wider philosophical project and discusses in how far they relate to - or are distinct from - his engagement with other dramatic or literary works
