Shakespeare and Modern Theatre


Shakespeare's works are now performed for an increasingly diversified cultural market. At the start of the twenty-first century, film, video, and live performance have overtaken the printed book as the main way people are introduced to Shakespeare. Therefore, is there any reason to read Shakespeare's plays anymore? The essays in this volume explore the question and the institutional practices that shape contemporary performances of Shakespeare's plays. The book gathers together a particularly strong line-up of contributors from across the literary-performative divide to examine the relationship between Shakespeare, the "culture industries," modernism, and live performance.
