Subject: Shakespeare in Italy
I wonder if I could trouble the list with a question about productions
of, or critical discussions of, Shakespeare during the fascist era in
Italy. I have a master's degree student who is fluent in Italian and is
casting about for a dissertation project that would enable him to make
use of his language. His current idea is to look at 'Shakespeare Under
Fascism' in Italy, but it's difficult to say whether this is a feasible
idea. Was Shakespeare produced in Italy during this period? Were Italian
writers and intellectuals much interested in Shakespeare?
Any help that list members could give-even if only pointing toward books
or sources that the student might look at-would be very gratefully
Feel free to reply off-list, if you think it more appropriate.
Thanks in advance,
