Shakespeare Matters: History, Teaching, Performance

Synopsis

"Shakespeare Matters: History, Teaching, Performance is a collection of original essays that addresses three significant areas in contemporary Shakespeare studies: interpretations of the plays in their historical and social contexts; the varying roles of Shakespeare's work in educational practices and traditions; and performance conventions and textual issues from the sixteenth century to the present. In each area, the authors discuss a range of issues by applying and debating key critical approaches to Shakespeare including new historicism, cultural materialism, feminism, and postcolonialism."
