Even as the General Strike loomed the Stratford theatre was destroyed by fire; the Birthday play, perforce performed in a cinema, was, significantly, Coriolanus. There is a lot more about the political situation in , all tending to show that attempts to depoliticise Shakespeare are bound in the long run to be frustrated by the action of a politicised providence.
This is a relatively benign manifestation of the current opinion that to think Shakespeare anything but political is a bourgeois-humanist cop-out. But the title at least is justified. However, he is not concerned with such paradoxes or aporiai, and in fact is rather good at saying, without the slightest equivocation, exactly what he means.
Meaning By Shakespeare - Terence Hawkes - Google Книги
The following propositions are rather dogmatically affirmed. What is needed, instead of repeated protestations of the incomparability, the imperial eminence, the heritage value of Shakespeare, is a constantly changing Rortian conversation, making no absolute claims and relinquishing the old bourgeois quest for a final, essential meaning. There are some easy truths here, but also some palpable errors. Hawkes uses what has become a common ploy: But there are, of course, many who do not fit this caricatured description, and they are unlikely to be either shocked or converted.
Some claims, then, are too obviously correct to detain us.
Gadamer has another famous sentence that gives an acceptable version of the idea that there is more to the text than the author can have intended: Nowadays there are fashionable critics who expressly declare that Shakespeare is valueless, his reputation an enormous bourgeois hoax, a plot against the people carried on by generations of time-serving buffers, unwitting agents of malign superior powers. Some subscribe to this conspiracy theory because they genuinely cannot see anything in Shakespeare and can find no other explanation for the fuss about him.
Others like him better but feel they have to politicise him into conformity with their own programmes for example, by discovering him to have been a covert opponent of James I before they can justify their interest.
Although he is often in sympathy with critics of the latter sort Hawkes is distinctive in that he actually seems to enjoy Shakespeare, and he quite often allows himself to speak about literature as if it really existed and might form a legitimate topic of conversation. Attacks on the idea that Shakespeare had anything to do with the meaning of what is lazily regarded as his work are fairly routine nowadays, but the firmness with which Hawkes states the case somehow serves to suggest his awareness of the case against it.
He sometimes allows, perhaps inadvertently, that Shakespeare and other authors did have something to do with the meaning of what they wrote: This seems to give the man who wrote the play a hand in making its meanings.
