Shakespeare's understanding of faith in humanity 5 janvier 2002
Par Leonardo Wilborn - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Shaheen is a good reference for anyone who is interested in learning how much of the bible Shakespeare used in his plays. Along with the biblical chapter and verse citations, Shaheen also refernce's the commonly understood practice of faith during the time Shakepeare was writing. What did the Catholic and Angelican church practice? What bible or biblical references did Shakespeare have access to? Shaheen gives one a bird's eye view of how the Christain church may have positively impacted the words, thoughts and faith of William Shakespeare.

MUST OWN! 3 décembre 2005
Par Wende L. Wagner - Publié sur

I have had the wonderful pleasure of having Dr. Shaheen as a professor for the past 5 years and this book is pure literary genius. Having spent his entrie professional career researching and documenting all biblical references in all of Shakespeare's works, Shaheen leaves nothing to question. He knows exactly what he is talking about and this book is a must have for any Shakespeare scholar or anyone interested in the literary use of the bible. Not only are his lectures amazingly informative, this book is as well.

Far too liberal in assigning scriptural origins 1 juin 2012
Par Edvard Odessia - Publié sur
Format: Relié
For at least three centuries, academic men of faith have been trying to conflate Shakespeare and the Bible, but the practice has never been so fashionable as today, when a growing number of scholars labor to find biblical sources for every human accomplishment. Shaheen has made a career out of this bandwagon. He defines his approach in his Introduction: 1) look at each line of a play; 2) check all of Shakespeare's known NON-biblical sources for that play, in search of a similar image or idiom. If found, then conclude that the line is not biblical in origin. 3) But if the line has no clear non-biblical origin, assume Shakespeare drew it from the Bible.

I have mixed feelings about this book, because this approach is flawed by various obvious biases and missing variables. At least half of the putative scriptural references are pure conjecture. Shakespeare's IMAGINATION, the primary source of his imagery, gets short shrift. However, it is interesting to read about the various versions of the Bible that Shaheen consulted, as well as about Shakespeare's other likely sources.

I prefer "Shakespeare's Biblical Knowledge," by Richmond Noble, which is much more conservative in its assumptions, and is written in admirable, even edifying prose. Used copies are expensive; you might find a better price from a bookseller named "Abe."

A good summary of contrasting opinions about Shakespeare's use of the Bible is in "Shakespeare's Books" by Stuart Gillespie, 2005.

Better than expected by far 10 août 2010
Par Deloss Brown - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
For a long time there was only one copy of this book (which, to be sure, is mostly of interest to Shakespeare wonks) available, used, for $999.99. So when another copy appeared for $19.95 and I think the seller's rating was "acceptable," I snapped it up. In fact the book was brand new, had no wear of any kind. And it didn't cost $1000, either.
