Synopsis: Using a combination of anthropological and psychoanalytic methods, Farrell relates the fantasies of "play-death" to the Renaissance belief that through self-effacement an individual may achieve autonomy in the family and society. Farrell develops a wide-ranging analysis of cultural responses to the human dread of death and makes Shakespeare's art a lens that brings into unusually sharp focus Renaissance social structure, gender relations, ideology, and religion.

Originally published in 1989.

Book Description: "This book deals with the concept of play-death from the level of playing dead, through death in plays, to the cultural responses to death and their relationship to heroic values. Using both anthropological and psychoanalytic approaches, the author attempts to analyze a variety of Shakespearean texts with a simulation of death, 'a rhythm of play-death and resurrection or heroic apotheosis' as their common factor. . . . The result is thought-provoking."-- Choice
