Reviews

“Timely, inventive, and wide-ranging, Bassi has assembled a fascinating collection of encounters between Shakespeare and Italy, most of which will be unfamiliar to Anglophone readers—and to most Italian ones as well. At once a gifted storyteller and an alert commentator on cultural politics and critical theory, Bassi emphasizes the dynamic exchange between past and present and between literature and political philosophy.” (Julia Reinhard Lupton, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, University of California, Irvine, USA)

“Dozens of books tell us what Shakespeare made of Italy. This book is a dazzling revelation in telling us what Italy has made, and continues to make, of Shakespeare ... . Bassi's historically alert, theoretically acute, and beautifully written account maps this appropriation, showing how Italy's reading, misreading, translating, and owning of Shakespeare is a key to the nation's political unconscious.  If you're interested in global Shakespeare, if you're interested in Italy, this book is a must.” (Carol Chillington Rutter, Professor of English and Director of the CAPITAL Centre, The University of Warwick, UK)
