Shakespeare's Entrails explores the connections between embodiment, knowledge and acknowledgement in Shakespeare's plays. Hillman sets out a theory of the emergence of modern subjectivity in the context of a world that was increasingly coming to see the human body as a closed system.

Review quote

'students of Shakespeare will find plenty of food for thought...Hillman's discussion of the cannibalistic fantasies that pervade Hamlet and the extensive heart imagery in King Lear are particularly interesting, and his chapter on Troilus and Cressida is essential reading for anyone tackling this strange but fascinating play. Shakespeare's Entrails is another excellent addition to the Palgrave Shakespeare Studies series.' - J. D. Atkinson, British Theatre Guide 'The scope of Hillman's argument can extend to include appetite, nausea, sex, breath, faith and a more general sense of inferiority and exteriority - (o homes and kingdoms). Shakespeare's Entrails brings an essential realm of language into focus, and provides something like a small encyclopedia of viscera on the way.' - Oliver Harris, TLS"
