Shakespearean Dramas: A Semiotic Approach

Bhasha Shukla Sharma (Author)
Synopsis William Shakespeare still retains his authority and the contemporary celebrity status.  This book throws light from a fresh angle on his play and points out the semiotic aspects in the examination of the death-theme in Shakespearean Dramas with special reference to hamlet and Macheth.  Semiotics, the science of signs, does not confine itself to language but studies any and all signs-aural, visual and physical.  The range, depth and variety with which Shakespeare presents death is kept under scrutiny.  From the point of view of the reader, the first order of the resent study in thematic and second is semiotic.  Semiotic analysis, in turn, comprises of verbal and non-verbal aspects.  The study concludes with the non-verbal approach to the plays of Shakespeare.  The prime concern here is in reconstituting Shakespeare’s ideas and finding new ways to extrapolate them.  This book tries to seek out in Shakespeare a psycho analysed Christianity or a christianized psychoanalysis.  It develops the semiotic correlations of the Freudian, the Christian and the Shakespearean parallel semiotically and thematically.
