About this book

What did the Victorians think of Shakespeare? The twelve essays gathered here offer some answers, through close examination of works by leading nineteenth-century novelists, poets and critics including Dickens, Trollope, Eliot, Tennyson, Browning and Ruskin. Shakespeare provided the Victorians with ways of thinking about the authority of the past, about the emergence of a new mass culture, about the relations between artistic and industrial production, about the nature of creativity, about racial and sexual difference, and about individual and national identity.

Reviews

' Victorian Shakespeare is not free from a tendency to make history a refuge from judgement, but it does richly advance our understanding of how Shakespeare made us and how we have made him.' - Times Literary Supplement
