Abstract: »Amanda Bailey's chapter, "Occupy Macbeth: Masculinity and Political Masochism in Macbeth, " also engages this connection between communal and personal masculine embodiments. It turns from the political intrigues of Macbeth to the ways that these political battles play out in Macbeth's affective state. Locating similar subjective formations in modern ideas of masochism and premodern accounts of demonic possession, Bailey presents a mediated form of male subjectivity that allows for an "affective mapping of national identification" (191). She shows that "Macbeth's imperial masochism highlights the dialectical nature of the longing for political authority and desire for communal membership" (208). These chapters collectively allow for new perspectives on traditional ideas of masculinity and its relationship to national formation.« (Jennifer Feather and Catherine E.
