Reviews

"'What means that trump?' Jeffrey Wilson sounds the Shakespearean resonances of the presidency, from controversial productions to what he terms 'politicitation.' Animated by a frank, searching voice, Wilson's book energetically chronicles our dramatic moment--and how it might end."--Scott Newstok, author of How to Think Like Shakespeare: Lessons from a Renaissance Education


"As Wilson illustrates, the political drama that has unfolded since 2016 is tragedy, comedy, and history rolled into one--and the consequence, in part, of a failure in the humanities to instill the moral and civic lessons that bind us. Serving as a corrective, this book reveals how understanding our present moment through a Shakespearean lens offers the possibility of healing and redemption--not only for the bitter political divide among Americans but also for the American democratic experiment itself."--Asha Rangappa, Senior Lecturer at the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, Yale University
