Shakespeare e l'amore

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Shakespeare and love

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Each chapter of the book shows an idea of love according to Shakespeare: love at first sight, love that turns into hatred and indifference, inter-ethnic love, jealousy, the love that breaks out of the need to tell one's story in a story that is confession and denunciation together ... An extraordinary case study, with the usual question at the center: is love tragedy or comedy? Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Othello, the Sonnets ... Scenes, jokes, dialogues taken from his works alternate with episodes from the life of Shakespeare, theatrical anecdotes, passages from English history, legends of the stage, they illuminate less known and unusual aspects of the dramas, of the characters that make them alive, of their creator. The works, treated without being summarized in a systematic way, are revived for the reader, who in the end will close the book with the impression of having 'read' or 'seen' them in a familiar yet new way, of having been admitted behind the scenes and having had access to the most extraordinary backstage in the history of the theater.
