My research interests grow out of my teaching experience, especially as that has focused on Renaissance Poetry, Shakespearean Drama, and the tradition of Literary and Rhetorical Theory descending from Aristotle. My current project—a book-length study with the working titleShakespeare and the Name of Action—takes its bearings from a famous remark by Hamlet about the way great enterprises can “lose the name of action.”
I am investigating what counts as action and what counts against it in selected plays by Shakespeare. The first section, “Pathos-as-Praxis,” starts from a short paragraph in Aristotle’sPoetics, which concentrates on pathos or suffering, the bedrock of tragedy, and which paradoxically asserts that a pathos is a praxis, an action. Part II, “The Workings of Conscience,” considers the antimony of conscience and action that is central to Hamlet’s meditation.
