Reviews

“In this volume Cary DiPietro and Hugh Grady have assembled a rich array of scholars to display the relevance of Shakespeare through sustained presentist readings of his work. … Shakespeare and the Urgency of Now will be of interest to scholars working on contemporary Shakespeares.” (Rachel Willie, Modern Language Review, Vol. 111 (3), July, 2016)
