Richard Van Oort

Shakespeare`s Big Men

Tragedy and the Problem of Resentment

€ 73.65


Shakespeare`s Big Men examines five Shakespearean tragedies--Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, and Coriolanus--through the lens of generative anthropology and the insights of its founder, Eric Gans. Generative anthropology`s theory of the origins of human society explains the social function of tragedy: to defer our resentment against the `big men` who dominate society by letting us first identify with the tragic protagonist and his resentment, then allowing us to repudiate the protagonist`s resentful rage and achieve theatrical catharsis. Drawing on this hypothesis, Richard van Oort offers inspired readings of Shakespeare`s plays and their representations of desire, resentment, guilt, and evil. His analysis revives the universal spirit in Shakespearean criticism, illustrating how the plays can serve as a way to understand the ethical dilemma of resentment and discover within ourselves the nature of the human experience.`-
