Beyond Shakespeare

Marxist Shakespeares uses the rich analytic resources of the Marxist tradition to look at Shakespeare's
plays afresh. The essays collected here reveal the continuing power of Marxist thought to address many
issues including:
* the relationship of texts to social class
* the historical construction of the aesthetic
* the utopian dimensions of literary production.
Marxist Shakespeares will be a vital resource for students of Shakespeare as it examines Marx's own
readings of Shakespeare, Derrida's engagement with Marx, and the importance of Bourdieu, Bataille,
Negri, and Alice Clark within a continuing tradition of Marxist thought.
