Description


From one of the world leading scholars in emblematics, this book seeks to demonstrate the extent to which Shakespeare used symbolic visuality in his use of the stage and objects in his infamous plays. Using obvious examples such as Hamlet's sword or Shylock's knife and less obvious ones like Ophelia's book to drive home his argument, Peter Daly draws on a range of works to show the underlining roles of the emblems used and the overarching iconography in Shakespeare's work.
