Summary expansion
A study of the political and romantic impulses of Shakespeare's tragic characters - including Macbeth, King Lear, Hamlet, Othello, and Iago, among others - discusses the overblown ambition of these characters as they embrace, cunning and evil in order to acquire power and romance. The excessive ambition shown by these characters fuels action in the plays and significantly contributes to their downfall. In other words, the book interrogates, in a pluralist critical frame, the forces behind the quest for power and romance by Shakespeare's protagonists, and explores how these forces propel the demise or fall of the heroes and heroines
