Summary
In this book Derek Cohen studies the relationship of Shakespearean drama to the Western culture of violence. He argues that violence is an inherent feature and form of patriarchy and that its production and control is one of the dominant motives of the political system. Violence in drama is by definition, never random. It is always part of the dramatic system of signs, used to advance action or to express ideology. Shakespeare's plays supply examples of the way in which the patriarchy of his plays - and hence, perhaps, of modern Western culture - absorbs, naturalizes, and legitimizes violence in its attempts to maintain political control over its subjects. Among those subjects are the politically weak - women and the poor - whose subject status it is in the interests of patriarchy to control. A means of such control is the use of violence, particularly a violence that has been sanctioned and sanctified by religion and ritual
