Shakespeare and Scandinavia: A Collection of Nordic Studies
"One study deals with the Elizabethans' incomplete and erroneous knowledge of Scandinavian geography and the resulting confusion in Hamlet. Another essay discusses the ever-recurring problem of Othello's color. Further studies are concerned with the loose ends and contradictions in Shakespeare's plays and the ways in which these enhance the dramatic effect, and with the architectonic aspects of his drama.

One close study of Henry V proposes a "Shakespearean philology" and raises fundamental questions of the relationship between language use and the exercise of power.
