9780198711742: Shakespeare, Race, and Colonialism (Oxford Shakespeare Topics)

Did Shakespeare and his contemporaries think at all in terms of "race"? Examining the depiction of cultural, religious, and ethnic difference in Shakespeare's plays, Ania Loomba considers how seventeenth-century ideas differed from the later ideologies of "race" that emerged during colonialism, as well as from older ideas about barbarism, blackness, and religious difference. Accessible yet nuanced analysis of the plays explores how Shakespeare's ideas of race were shaped by beliefs about color, religion, nationality, class, money and gender.

About the Author:

Ania Loomba is a Professor of English, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Review:


"Loomba gives a detailed picture of the concept of race in Shakespeare's day.... Loomba's scholarship is rigorous, carefully grounding interpretation of the plays in the ideologies of Shakespeare's time."--Sixteenth Century Journal


"Race and colonialism have certainly become important Shakespearean topics in recent years and one could not hope for a more authoritative and accessible discussion of them than that provided by Ania Loomba.... In sum, this book offers a case study of how to write for a wide readership without betraying the complexity of the subject matter."--Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History


"Loomba's compact yet comprehensive Shakespeare, Race, and Colonialism offers a systematic approach to the conjunction of race and Shakespeare.... It covers an impressive range of discursive constructions in the period."--Studies in English Literature 1500-1900


"A very interesting treatment about self-definition, difference, and xenophobia."--Bibliothèque d'Humanisme et Renaissance

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For centuries, plays like Othello and The Tempest have spoken about race to audiences whose lives have been, and continue to be, enormously affected by the racial question. But are concepts such as race or racism , xenophobia , ethnicity , or even nation appropriate for analysing communities and identities in early modern Europe? Did skin colour matter to Shakespeare and his contemporaries, or was religious difference more important to them? This book examines how Shakespeare s plays contribute to, and are themselves crafted from, contemporary ideas about social and cultural difference. It considers how such ideas might have been different from later ideologies of race that emerged during colonialism, but also from older ideas about barbarism, blackness, and religious difference. Thus it places the racial question in Shakespeare s plays alongside the histories with which they converse. Shakespeare uses and plays with the vocabularies of difference prevailing in his time, repeatedly turning to religious and cultural cross-overs and conversions - their impossibility, or the traumas they engender, or the social upheavals they can generate. Shakespeare, Race and Colonialism looks in depth at Othello, The Merchant of Venice, Antony and Cleopatra, The Tempest, and Titus Andronicus, and also shows how racial difference shapes the language and themes of other plays.
