Subject:    Christa Jansohn, Dieter Mehl (Eds.): Shakespeare Jubilees: 1769-2014

 

I am delighted to announce the publication of a collection of essays on Shakespeare Jubilees around the world from 1764 to 2014:

 

Christa Jansohn, Dieter Mehl (Eds.): Shakespeare Jubilees: 1769-2014 (Studien zur englischen Literatur, 27). Paperback  29.90 EUR, br., ISBN 978-3-643-90590-1. Münster: LIT, 2015.

 

The essay collection ranges from the elaborate celebrations in Shakespeare’s hometown to more modest festivities elsewhere; from ambitious, theatrical, and politically loaded demonstrations to nationally coloured, culturally distinct and idiosyncratic commemorations. The variety of ways in which geographically distant countries have remembered Shakespeare has never before been the object of a comparative study.  We hope that the essays in this collection will throw new light on Shakespeare as a shared international heritage.
