About the Book

Shakespeare's Festive Tragedy is a unique look at the social and religious foundations of the tragic genre. Naomi Liebler asks whether it is possible to regard tragic heroes such as Coriolanus and King Lear as `sacrifical victims of the prevailing social order'.

A fascinating examination of Shakespearean tragedy, this extraordinary book will provoke excitment and controversy alike.
