Shakespeare after the “Cultural Turn”
Part of the Early Modern Cultural Series book series


Shakespeare and the Question of Culture has offered “thin” descriptions of various literary topics as a supplement to thick description, the most prevalent and compelling mode of cultural analysis practiced today. To these thinner descriptions, it has joined an analysis of criticism itself, especially recent critical genres concerned with early modern literature. In all of these chapters, my goal has been to heighten awareness of the way in which form structures critical inquiry. By “form” in this study I have meant not only such larger units of patterning as genre and mode but also things like key words and phrases, the very repetition of which can help to create a genre in the first place.
