About this item

In the current climate of global military conflict and terrorism, Shakespeare at Peace offers new readings of Shakespeare’s plays illuminating a discourse of peace previously shadowed by war and violence. Using contemporary examples such as Obama’s speeches, popular music, and science fiction adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays, Shakespeare at Peace reads Shakespeare’s plays to illuminate current debates and rhetoric around conflict and peace. In this challenging and evocative book, Garrison and Pivetti re-frame Shakespeare as a proponent of peace, rather than war, and suggest new ways of exploring the vitality of Shakespeare’s work for politics today.
