About this Item

FINE. Dustjacket near fine. Slight shelfwear to DJ only. Metallic red lettering to spine, light gray cloth-covered boards. Very clean, tight, bright. Sharp corners. No markings. 365 pp with notes and index. "This penetrating study of Shakespeare's discovery of a subjective voice calls upon deep learning in several fields: in the history of rhetoric from ancient times through the Renaissance, in psychoanalysis, in post-structuralism, in semiotics, in modern philosophy. Fineman is widely read in these fields and an astute close reader of Shakespeare's poetry, The result is an originality that few scholars would be able to emulate," (from review on DJ rear panel).

About this title

Synopsis:

Fineman argues that in the sonnets Shakespeare developed an unprecedented poetic persona, one that subsequently became the governing model of all literary subjectivity.

From Library Journal:

Shakespeare's sonnets are here studied as epideictic poetry: praise for the young man is contrasted with that for the Dark Lady, demonstrating how such praise is "perjured" by paradox and self-reference. The argument is wide-ranging, learned, sensitive, dense, and, occasionally, brilliant. Praise of this book must however be balanced by dispraise: although it offers a welcome new, systematic approach to the sonnets and ultimately to all of Shakespeare, its prose is needlessly self-indulgent, obfuscatory, and diffuse.
