Summary
In this elegant and provocative book, Philippa Berry draws on feminist theory, postmodern thought and queer theory, to challenge existing critical notions of what is 'fundamental' to Shakespearean tragedy. She shows how, through a network of images clustered around feminine or feminized characters, these plays 'disfigure' conventional ideas of death as a bodily end, as their figures of women are interwoven with provocative meditations upon matter, time, the soul, and the body. The scope of these tragic speculations was radical in Shakespeare's day; yet they also have a surprising relevance to contemporary debates about time and matter in science and philosophy
