Shakespeare’s myriad-minded stage: Propositional spaces of cultural hybridity

Drábek, Pavel




© The Author(s) 2019. The concept of hybridity is profoundly ingrained in logocentric epistemologies that assert such cultural constructs as the unity of a text, authorship, ownership or an identity of sorts. This article aims at hybridity that takes place in the act of the audience’s perception and understanding of the play. On the example of Shakespeare’splays, I address the question of (1) truth value and fiction in performance, (2) the propositionality of the stage and (3) the shift in performance as an oral medium from logocentric textuality to human interaction as social act.
