Subject:        New Book on Shakespeare

Dear list,

I rec'd a notification of this new book today, as I belong to a list
that distributes information about new university press books as they're
released:

Title: Gross, Kenneth: Shakespeare's Noise
Publisher: University of Chicago Press

Kenneth Gross explores Shakespeare's deep fascination with dangerous and
disorderly forms of speaking--especially rumor, slander, insult,
vituperation, and curse--and through them offers a vision of the work of
words in his plays. Coriolanus's taunts or Lear's curses force us to
think not just about how characters speak, but also  about how they
hear, overhear, and mishear what is spoken, how rumor  becomes tragic
knowledge for Hamlet, or opens Othello to fantastic  jealousies.

For more information, see the book synopsis at
http://www.press.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/hfs.cgi/00/14097.ctl

Just a note, I receive no money for passing this along, and it's not an
endorsement!  ;-)

Hope it's of interest to some.

Lisa Guidarini
