  8. Deadly Thought: Hamlet and the Human Soul.Jan H. Blits - 2001 - Lexington Books.
    The human soul is for pre-modern philosophers the cause of both thinking and life. This double aspect of the soul, which makes man a rational animal, expresses itself above all in human action. Deadly Thought: 'Hamlet' and the Human Soul traces Hamlet's famous inability to act to his inability to hold together these twin aspects of the soul.

    New Heaven, New Earth: Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra.Jan H. Blits - 2009 - Lexington Books.
    New Heaven, New Earth is a philosophical study ofAntony and Cleopatra.

    The Insufficiency of Virtue: Macbeth and the Natural Order.Jan H. Blits - 1996 - Rowman and Littlefield.
    The first scene-by-scene philosophical study of any Shakespeare play, this book demonstrates why Shakespeare's poetic writings still arouse and sustain serious inquiry and reflection.

Blits delineates the competing forms of virtue within Macbeth--the courageous public virtue of warriors like Macbeth and the internal Christian virtue evoked by Duncan.
