Shakespeare and Domestic Loss: Forms of Deprivation, Mourning, and Recuperation
This book re-examines some of Shakespeare's best-known texts in the light of their engagement with the forms of deprivation which threatened domestic security in early modern England. Burglary, the loss of home, and the early deaths of parents emerge as central and very telling issues in Shakespearean drama. Dubrow relates the plays to Shakespeare's poetry (The Rape of Lucrece and the sonnets), and to early modern cultural texts such as the literature of roguery; she also introduces illuminating perspectives from contemporary social problems (notably crime), twentieth-century poetry, and popular culture.
