Law & Literature; Volume 15


Scholars of English literature and the history and theory of law contribute to the flourishing scholarship on law and Shakespeare by discussing the body politic and power politics, ethnicity and alterity, legal theory, and performance. Among their topics are certain objects and functions of ambiguity in Shakespearean theater, the subjugation of international law to power politics and mystery of state (arcana imperii) in Henry V, fuss about a footnote: the struggle for (the) law in German legal theory, Measure for Measure: whether criminal laws are made to be applied, and A Midsummer Night's Dream summer 1989-90 in Sydney: the theatrical transmutability of law's texts.
