Abstract

Shakespeare inherited his understanding of 'language' from the Middle Ages. In the seventeenth century, our very different modern understanding is established. Yet Shakespeare, as a touchstone of modernity, has to be presented as sharing ourlinguistic conceptions. I argue that our treatment of Shakespeare, language, and modernity, is contradictory and highly problematic.
