Shakespeare and the idea of late writing: Cambridge ; New York: Cambridge University Press, English View all editions and formats Summary: And what exactly, then, do we mean when we speak of 'Shakespeare's late style' or Shakespeare's late work?
In Shakespeare and the Idea of Late Writing, Gordon McMullan argues that - far from being a natural phenomenon common to a handful of geniuses who, in their last few years, enter a rejuvenated period of serene, abstract or sometimes difficult, resistant creativity, a transition typically attributed to old age or to the proximity of death - late style is in fact a critical construct. Taking Shakespeare as his exemplar, he maps the development of the idea of the 'late plays' from the later eighteenth century to the present, noting not only the mismatch between what he call the 'discourse of lateness' and the actual conditions of production and of authorship in early modern theatre but also the generativity of this discourse for subsequent projections of creative selfhood.

Reviews of the hardback: It also demonstrates an elegance and modesty too often lacking in many discussions of complicated ideas. All this, and its open-mindedness, make it a very provocative, and a very important, book. To send content items to your account, please confirm that you agree to abide by our usage policies.
