Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This work contains 16 academic essays by as many authors, including Mazzio (English, Univ. of Michigan), Trevor (teaching fellow, English, Harvard), and Marjorie Garber, who edits the "Culture Work" series, of which this is the sixth book. Most of the authors are from English departments and write heady stuff, in this case contrasting and melding epistemologies of Marx and Freud to delve into 15th- and 16th-century individuality (subjectivity). Those familiar with Judith Butler, Jacques Lacan, Slavoj Zizek, and Joan Copjec, who are often referred to, will be comfortable with the language and some of the arguments. However, only general readers with backgrounds in the chapter topics (e.g., Shakespeare, Villon) or those who enjoy brilliant speculation on rarefied ideas will be rewarded. "The Inside Story" by David Hillman (the only psychologist here) concerns the boundaries of inner and outer, the spatial metaphor as found in Hamlet. This is material for historians in general and of culture and medicine in particular, as well as psychoanalytically sophisticated literary critics.DE. James Lieberman, George Washington Univ.

More About the Author

Carla Mazzio is currently a John Simon Guggenheim Fellow in Residence at the Huntington Library in California. Her award winning books include *The Inarticulate Renaissance: Language Trouble in an Age of Eloquence* (awarded the Roland H. Bainton Book Prize for Literature in 2010) and (with David Hillman) *The Body in Parts: Fantasies of Corporeality in Early Modern Europe* (awarded the English Association's Beatrice White Book Prize). Mazzio, who earned her BA from Barnard College and PhD from Harvard University, teaches in the Department of English at the University at Buffalo, SUNY. She has special research interests in Shakespeare, in the history of the inarticulate person or community, and the history of mathematics in relationship to emotional life.
