Product Description

Intended to be read alongside the author's previous work The Quest for Shakespeare--which pointed out evidences for Catholicism in Shakespeare's life--Through Shakespeare's Eyes looks at the evidence in The Merchant of Venice, Hamlet, and King Lear. Looking at Portia as a Marian figure, viewing the "caskets" as tests of "pagan" fate, Calvinistic predeterminism, and finally, Catholic freedom of the Will, similarities to Catholic writings Shakespeare seemed to be familiar with, and other textual elements, Joseph Pearce puts together an intriguing hypothesis. 222 pages, indexed. Hardcover with dust jacket.
