Summary
An examination of what the world's greatest dramatist can teach us about life in an America riven by conflict. For well over two centuries now, Americans of all stripes--presidents and activists, writers and soldiers--have turned to his plays to prosecute the most intense and pivotal quarrels in the soul of the nation, a nation defined by its political and social pluralism. The author contends that few writers or artists can shed as much light on the hot-button issues of American life and that by better understanding the role of Shakespeare's plays in American history we might take steps towards mending our bitterly divided land. --
