I don't get this

I thought that a Stall occurs when a wing is asked to go beyond its critical AoA. Going beyond the critical AoA with a high tailplane risks shadowing the elevator...

As a side note,
If (like I assume they do) tailplanes create negative lift to balance the aircraft then why do aircraft designers not place them in such a way that as soon as a wing is set to stall the stab goes into the wing shadow, causing it to lose effectiveness and unstall the wing?
