„This is a rich interpretation of a rich text. Ben Amara provides a
twenty-first century reading of a timeless masterpiece, and in so doing he
can point to the relationship of death and desire as a playing both with
body and language. He delights in confronting his readers with the
ineluctable patterns which language and time inscribe within the
open/closed Shakespearean space: Degree, division, and diversity as the
focal points. Emphasis upon the corporeality of the human body
this study’s textual interpretation with the corpus of the literary canon,
itself seen as a body divided by performance and differed by reading. It
also true that The Fragmentation of the Proper Name and the Crisis of
Degree: Deconstructiong King Lear prevails over the damaging engagement
with the deconstructed text and dominates the conflictual tendencies of
reconstructed drama.“
Christopher Mulvey, King Alfred’s College, Wincester, England.
