9780226378565: Shakespeare and the Law: A Conversation among Disciplines and Professions

William Shakespeare is inextricably linked with the law. Legal documents make up most of the records we have of his life, and trials, lawsuits, and legal terms permeate his plays. Gathering an extraordinary team of literary and legal scholars, philosophers, and even sitting judges, Shakespeare and the Law demonstrates that Shakespeare’s thinking about legal concepts and legal practice points to a deep and sometimes vexed engagement with the law’s technical workings, its underlying premises, and its social effects.

The book’s opening essays offer perspectives on law and literature that emphasize both the continuities and contrasts between the two fields. The second section considers Shakespeare’s awareness of common law thinking and common law practice, while the third inquires into Shakespeare’s general attitudes toward legal systems. The fourth part of the book looks at how law enters into conversation with issues of politics and community, whether in the plays, in Shakespeare’s world, or in our own world. Finally, a colloquy among Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, Judge Richard Posner, Martha C. Nussbaum, and Richard Strier covers everything from the ghost in Hamlet to the nature of judicial discretion.

Review :

Shakespeare and the Law is true to its word. This collection is filled with captivating and often convincing claims about not just the brooding omnipresence but also the moral necessity of law to Shakespeare’s characters, their fate, and the quality of justice depicted and dispensed in the plays, as well as in Shakespeare’s own life and in our own world. The essays provide an education, while the transcribed conversation that closes the volume, with a guest appearance by Justice Stephen Breyer, is an illuminating and delightful denouement.”
(Robin West, Georgetown University)

“Offers insights into Shakespeare, culture, and law. The contributors are experts in their fields; they speak with authority when need be and with humor when called for.”
  (Federal Lawyer)

“This splendid collection of essays embraces dramaturgical, legal-historical, legal-philosophical, and formal and linguistic approaches to the question of Shakespeare and the law. Although the Shakespeare we meet here is suspicious of the law’s formalisms, a world without law is no utopia in his plays. Instead Shakespeare seeks out and celebrates the forms of equity that might qualify and contextualize the letter of the law in order to explore the forms of civility and fellowship through which human beings resolve conflicts and build worlds. Funny, informative, fast-moving, and smart, this book is both a pleasure to read and a resource to savor and share.”
(Julia Reinhard Lupton, author of Thinking with Shakespeare)

 “The main title of this excellent volume—Shakespeare and the Law—is too modest. The subtitle—A Conversation among Disciplines and Professions—is more accurate. A collection of brilliant conversationalists, taking law and literature as baseline frames of reference, explores the intersections of literary texts, jurisprudential conundrums, problems in the philosophy of language, the imperatives of morality, the abyss of history, the perils of statecraft, the legitimacy of authority, and the deep waters of race and gender. Always, however, the conversation returns to works of literature, with even the lawyers and judges acknowledging that the pleasures of the text exceed the (considerable) pleasures of analysis. Riches abound, but I must single out Martha Nussbaum’s weaving together of Julius Caesar (both historical person and character), Gandhi’s India, George Washington’s self-presentation, and the lessons imparted to her by her father on the way to a startling but inevitable and earned conclusion: ‘Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar is a misleading, even a dangerous work.’” (Stanley Fish)

“A kaleidoscopic feature of the book that emerges . . . is a natural result of the rich and varied interpretations of the thinkers’, professors’, judges’, and experts’ different institutional and disciplinary considerations.”
(Sixteenth Century Journal)
