Overview

Explains how an adherent to the so-called Christian interpretation of Shakespeare can be a Marxist critic. Shakespeare’s history plays, Siegel contends, were shaped by the Christian humanist ideology of the new Tudor aristocracy and are subtle works of art whose characters are complex creations, not mere spokesmen for social classes.
