Stanley Cavell's American Dream: Shakespeare, Philosophy, and Hollywood Movies

Fordham University Press (2006)
Abstract
This book explores Cavell’s writings along converging lines of thought rather than in isolated categories. The author claims that, after Cavell’s celebrated reading of King Lear turned into a nightmarish meditation on Vietnam, he found a more audible voice. Noting that Cavell’s keen ear for the expressive power of ordinary language makes him both a first-rate literary artist and a compelling philosopher of the everyday, he catches what holds Cavell’s manifold interests together. Here the poetry of ideas and presence of mind that animate Cavell’s writing receive readings attuned to the spirit of their composition and its enlivening powers.
