About Shakespeare and Economic Theory


Over the last 20 years, the concept of ‘economic’ activity has come to seem inseparable from psychological, semiotic and ideological experiences. In fact, the notion of the ‘economy’ as a discrete area of life seems increasingly implausible. This returns us to the situation of Shakespeare’s England, where the financial had yet to be differentiated from other forms of representation. This book shows how concepts and concerns that were until recently considered purely economic affected the entire range of 16th- and 17th-century life.

Using the work of such critics as Jean-Christophe Agnew, Douglas Bruster, Hugh Grady and many others, Shakespeare and Economic Theory traces economic literary criticism to its cultural and historical roots, discusses its main practitioners, and shows how it can reveal previously unappreciated qualities of Shakespeare’s work.

HuffingtonPost Books, The Blog: Francis Levy, Neither Progress Nor Perfection, September 17, 2013

Francis Levy writes: It’s always refreshing to read a jeremiad against the notion of progress… In his review of John Gray’s The Silence of Animals: On progress and Other Modern Myths (“Backwards to the Future,” TLS 8/30/13) David Hawkes quotes an earlier line from the English philosopher’s Heresies: Against Progress and Other Illusions to the effect that “Belief in progress is the Prozac of the thinking class.”
