Title Shakespeare on the edge : border-crossing in the tragedies and the Henriad / Lisa Hopkins
Published Aldershot, Hants, England ; Burlington, VT : Ashgate Pub., ©2005


Description 1 online resource (154 pages)
Contents The marches: Henry IV and Henry V -- The coast: Hamlet -- The border: Macbeth -- Islands: Othello -- The edge: King Lear
Summary England's land borders with Scotland and Wales, together with the narrow channels separating the British mainland from Ireland and the Continent, were the focus of acute, if intermittent, unease during the early modern period. This book analyses works by not only Shakespeare but also his contemporaries to argue that many of the plays of Shakespeare's central period, from the second tetralogy to Hamlet, King Lear, Macbeth, and Othello, engage with the idea of England's borders
