"Who's There?" is the charming story of a family in the agricultural south.
For John Lee the question "Who's there?," with which Shakespeare's Hamlet begins announces the play's concern with identity.
Lee claims that postmodern critics, in contrast, answer the question "Who's there?" with a resounding "nothing." Lee engages in a witty and often scathing attack on New Historicists and Cultural Materialists, challenging their denials of interiority to the early modern "subject." He maintains that for New Historicists, Hamlet is a subject, a social product, and a stage on which contemporary ideologies are enacted.
He deftly uses the question "Who's there?" to clarify the often confusing theories of subjectivity espoused by postmodern critics.
