Subject:      Shakespeare without Boundaries: Essays in Honor of Dieter Mehl

_Shakespeare without Boundaries: Essays in Honor of Dieter Mehl_
Edited by Christa Jansohn, Lena Cowen Orlin, and Stanley Wells
(Newark: Delaware Press, 2010)

Shakespeare Without Boundaries offers a wide-ranging collection of essays 
written by an international team of distinguished scholars. Their aim is to 
define, to challenge, and to erode boundaries that currently inhibit 
understanding of Shakespeare, and to exemplify how approaches that defy 
traditional bounds of study and criticism may enhance understanding and 
enjoyment of a dramatist who acknowledged no boundaries to his art.
