Eight Hamlets By David Bishop
eBook (PDF): $1.00
The study of the humanities today cries out for revolutionary change. Pickled in jargon and preaching to the choir, so-called Theory floats free of practice. Specialists enmeshed in esoteric... More > superfluities fiddle with abandon while Rome burns. Literature becomes the alleged possession of an ever-shrinking coterie, until it dries up and blows away. To bring the news of great art, and thought, to the public should be the central purpose of education. To bring great works to life, to show their vital relevance to our brief term on earth, to excite, to challenge, to expand the mind, touch the heart and feed the soul, to connect with other human beings, close to home and at the ends of the earth: this is progress, and progress is possible. This book proposes a direction of progress in the understanding of Hamlet, by examining the interpretations of Bradley, Goddard, Jenkins, Cavell, Bloom, Greenblatt and Garber. The eighth Hamlet, the point of view I compare with the others’, is mine.< Less

The Wheel of Ideals shows three families of ideals, the heroic, civic and altruistic, that sometimes work together and sometimes conflict. Every ideal has its true believers, and unbelievers: some... More > people believe in it strongly, others less strongly, and others not at all—or so they claim. As ideals divide, people also divide. We can’t all get along, perfectly, all the time, even with ourselves. Why not? Do we need conflict to make progress? Is perfect peace too peaceful? As ideals can be ignored or betrayed, they can also be carried too far, into decadence: dionysian overheating and the apollonian deep freeze. If you carried an ideal too far, how would you come to realize your mistake? How would you feel the gravity, the balancing pull, of the ideal calling you home? Without failure, without going too far, what is lost? What is the good of all these ideals, and these forms of decadence? The Wheel of Ideals suggests that we will go on asking these questions.< Less
