Shakespeare and the Afterlife

In Shakespeare and the Afterlife (Oxford University Press, 2018) John Garrison, associate professor of English, explores what happens after death within Shakespeare’s work. Garrison covers some of the most memorable moments in Shakespeare’s plays: ghosts, witches, demons, and characters who seem to return from the dead. He uses an accessible style that is ideal for students and teachers. Garrison has written the first book-length study of this topic, synthesizing existing research on death, the supernatural, religion, and memory, and tackling the enduring question: What happens after death?
