Summary
This publication contains forty specially written articles providing fresh and imaginative readings of Shakespeare's plays and poems, reflects on the current state of Shakespeare studies, and suggests the likely future directions it will take. The volume is divided into five sections: Texts explores how Shakespeare wrote, who he collaborated with, the ways in which his works were transmitted, and the reactions of his early readers; Conditions examines the economic, social, artistic, and linguistic forces at play on Shakespeare; Works discusses the various stages of his career; Performances is concerned with issues such as the reception of his plays, the theatre business, and film adaptations; and Current Speculations includes essays on topics ranging from the role of philosophical thought and the influence of classical sources to the relevance of empire, technology, religion, and law. By covering the range of Shakespeare's work in his time and ours, this myriad-minded book deepens and enriches our understanding of the great poet and unparalleled playwright's accomplishments
