PRAGMATICS
Rudanko, Juhani. 1993. Pragmatic Approaches to Shakespeare. Essays
on Othello, Coriolanus and Timon of Athens. Lanham, New York
and London: The University Press of America.
The book explores and develops methods of linguistic pragmatics that
can, it is suggested, be applied to the study of dramatic dialogue in
three Shakespearean tragedies. As far as Othello is concerned, the
methods applied include topic analysis and case grammar analysis, the
latter applied to soliloquies; in the case of Coriolanus there is a
focus on speech act analysis, and as for Timon of Athens, it is
proposed that politeness theory sheds light on themes of the play. It
is argued that the practical application of methods of linguistic
pragmatics contributes to a better understanding of the three plays as
dramatic works of art and also leads to the further refinement of the
methods themselves as tools of analysis.
