Criticism Volume 54, Number 3

Criticism 54-3 is a special issue devoted to Shakespeare and phenomenology. By embracing phenomenology's intellectual diaspora, the editors hope to offer a new critical agenda for phenomenologically inflected reading of Shakespeare. The essays in this volume seek to illustrate how a phenomenological approach opens Shakespearean theater out to a host of possible conversations, exchanges, and insights.
