Othello from the Author: Nicholas Potter. Othello is a major shakespearean text, studied widely and often adapted for film and TV and is especially challenging for a multicultural society. Othello lends itself to criticism through discussion of the major characters although this study also focuses on recent criticism's analysis of the characters as "signifiers". The study of the key characters takes the discussion of the text immediately into the central issues of "otherness", gender, race and power.

Teaching Reading Shakespeare from the Author: John Haddon. Teaching Reading Shakespeare is warmly and clearly communicated, and gives ownership of ideas and activities to teachers by open and explicit discussion. John Haddon creates a strong sense of community with teachers, raising many significant and difficult issues, and performing a vital and timely service in doing so. - Simon Thomson, Globe Education, Shakespeare’s Globe John Haddon offers creative, systematic and challenging approaches which don’t bypass the text but engage children with it. He analyses difficulty rather than ignoring it, marrying his own academic understanding with real sensitivity to the pupils’ reactions, and providing practical solutions. - Trevor Wright, Senior Lecturer in Secondary English, University of Worcester, and author of 'How to be a Brilliant English Teacher', also by Routledge. Teaching Reading Shakespeare is for all training and practising secondary teachers who want to help their classes overcome the very real difficulties they experience when they have to ‘do’ Shakespeare. Providing a practical and critical discussion of the ways in which Shakespeare’s plays present problems to the young reader, the book considers how these difficulties might be overcome. It provides guidance on: confronting language difficulties, including ‘old words’, meaning, grammar, rhetoric and allusion; reading the plays as scripts for performance at Key Stage 3 and beyond; using conversation analysis in helping to read and teach Shakespeare; reading the plays in contextual, interpretive and linguistic frameworks required by examinations at GCSE and A Level. At once practical and principled, analytical and anecdotal, drawing on a wide range of critical reading and many examples of classroom encounters between Shakespeare and young readers, Teaching Reading Shakespeare encourages teachers to develop a more informed, reflective and exploratory approach to Shakespeare in schools.

Critical Perspectives On Literature And Culture In The New World Order

Critical Perspectives On Literature And Culture In The New World Order from the Author: Noritah Omar. The fifteen chapters in this volume explore both new and tested theoretical perspectives on literature and culture at large; this multiplicity of discourses is a reflection of the implicit discontent in conforming to the New World Order, and a contestation against hierarchical relationships between countries, which inform the social, cultural and political climates of weaker nations. With the political and economic hegemony of stronger nations, weaker nations run the risk of being dominated, or at the very least, having their own national identity and sovereignty steeped in ambivalence in the face of a globalised culture. This volume hopes to bring together critical views in relation to the construction of cultural studies in the Western framework, the application of literary theory in the readings of vernacular literature, contestation of the mainstream scientistic methodology of cultural evaluation, the role of English literature in Asian cultures, the application of postcolonial theory in literature, literary ethics in relation to Islamic literature, as well as the Islamic and Western conceptions of democracy. More than half of the articles in this collection centre on Islam as a guiding principle, or as a context through which critical perspectives are made on literature and culture in today’s globalised world order. This inadvertent foregrounding of Islam reflects a continuing dialogue on and with Islam and its significant impact on existing academic discourses founded upon Western-style scholarship.
