Reviews

"This wide-ranging collection brings together the fields of Shakespearean appropriation and global Shakespeares in a way that advances substantially our understanding of how the two have become inextricable from one another." - Christy Desmet, Josiah

Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professor of English, University of Georgia, USA

"As demonstrated by the nineteen uniformly accessible essays collected in Reinventing the Renaissance, Shakespeare lives on in more genres, media and cultures than ever before, some familiar (like the novel and film), some new (like the graphic novel and fanvid)." - Times Literary Supplement
