Seller Inventory Z Condition: Used: Very Good. Revenge is a primary obligation in a moral system that has coexisted in Europe with that of Jesus and will probably outlast it: demanded by ghosts, it is an example of the ambivalence of the sacred, such that a mass for the dead may, in despite of authority, be said to procure the death of a living enemy. What has Greenblatt got to add? He makes several exact observations of verbal points, mostly original and nearly all new to me, which entrench the rendezvous between Hamlet and his father more deeply in the purgatorial tradition he has traced.
What should we do? There is surely something still to be found out about this triple oath, but Greenblatt has done a lot to help. The Latin, and the question mark if it is authentic, appeal to something generally understood. We are not yet in a churchyard, though we shall be in Act Five. There are other indications that Greenblatt has hit the nail on the head. I do not think, and neither does Greenblatt, that this makes Shakespeare a Catholic, which was itself a distinctly fluid description in It does seem to give him a fairly special acquaintance with purgatorial matter, which one might attribute to his recusant father, who was into indulgences.
I may be doing Greenblatt an injustice by suggesting that he has forgotten this, since he mentions it in an earlier chapter, but it does not figure in his final judgment, which is that Shakespeare has taken a theological, and real-life, notion of remembrance and turned it into a metaphor for the more innocent remembrance of things past with which the theatre may provide us. To end up with a philosophy of the theatre strikes me as pandering to his audience: a rare false note in a learned and persuasive book.
One final point. Profoundly original. Oakes, Commonweal "Greenblatt reveals how Shakespeare turned the Anglican assault on the idea of purgatory as mere poetry into an indispensable poetic resource. In addition to this decisive repositioning of Hamlet's place in modern culture, Greenblatt provides extraordinary readings of little-know works A major work of contemporary scholarship.
