Summary note:
Wittgenstein’s Culture and Value contains a number of puzzling comments on Shakespeare. Using these comments as a jumping-off point, I explore the later Wittgenstein's theory of language-games and its relation to theatre and the creation of art. I suggest that each individual play can be viewed as a unique language-game.
