Evans's argument echoes what many Grade 12 English students suspect--that in the hands of the dominant order, Shakespeare is a tool of oppression. The critical approach Evans employs is from a Marxist angle, but there are also some interesting moments in which he deploys deconstruction theory in analyses of those passages that reflect a significant degree of textual instability. The plays Evans discusses most fully include As You Like It, Hamlet, Love's Labour's Lost, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Tempest.
