In his plays, Shakespeare produced a new and unprecedented way of thinking about life, death, power, and their affects. Philosophical Readings of Shakespeare offers close readings of King Lear, Hamlet, Macbeth, and Timon of Athens to provide insight into the ontological discourse of poverty and money. Following Marxian thought, Margherita Pascucci shows how Shakespeare was the first to depict money as a conceptual persona. Ultimately, the book's analysis of the themes of creation, subjectivity, and value opens new reflections on central questions of our time.
