Summary
"The book examines six of Shakespeare's plays--Titus Andronicus, The Merchant of Venice, Hamlet, Othello, King Lear and Macbeth--and explores how they satirized humanism's grounding in Aristotle's philosophy of slavery and supremacy. Shakespeare used characters like Hamlet and Aaron the Moor to lampoon that bigotry, and his stance against racism and humanism revealed his Catholic faith"--Provided by publisher
