Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
South African Essays on 'Universal' Shakespeare addresses certain nuances of Shakespearean production and reception across time and space. It collects new scholarship and extant (but previously unpublished) material, reflecting the changing nature of Shakespeare studies across various 'generation gaps'. Each essay is inflected by a South African connection: in some cases, simply because of the author's nationality or birthplace or institutional affiliation; in others, there is a direct engagement with what Shakespeare means, or has meant, in South Africa. By investigating the universality of Shakespeare from both implicitly and explicitly 'southern' perspectives, the book presents new possibilities for considering (and reassessing) shifting manifestations of Shakespeare's work in major Shakespearean 'centres' such as Britain and the United States, as well as across the global North and South.
