Abstract

A review of Nicholas Ray's book Tragedy and Otherness: Sophocles, Shakespeare, Psychoanalysis (Peter Lang, 2009). The book offers a post structuralist/psychoanalytic reading of Oedipus the King, Julius Caesar, and Hamlet, as well as a reworking of Freud's insights on tragedy, from a perspective informed by the work of Jean Laplanche and an emphasis on the experience of otherness.

Keywords: Shakespeare, Freud, Oedipus, Sophocles, Hamlet, Psychoanalytic criticism, Tragedy
