Shakespeare's plays investigate the implications of using the mimetic process - a process that invents by redefining personal and collective identities and re-establishing mythic representation, references, and allusions. This book focuses on Shakespeare's understanding that the creative repositioning of the point of origin to restructure existing devastation and to create an ideal world also give birth to destructive impulses. His dramas suggest that this regressive moment is formulated from associations, economic factors, family relationships, political factors, personal philosophies and affiliations, and then are supplied structurally, linguistically, artistically, psychologically, culturally, politically, socially, and economically.
