South African Essays on ‘Universal’ Shakespeare collects new scholarship and extant (but formerly unpublished) fabric, reflecting the altering nature of Shakespeare stories throughout a number of ‘generation gaps’. every one essay, in exploring the nuances of Shakespearean creation and reception throughout time and area, is inflected through a South African connection. at times, this can be just because of the author’s nationality or institutional association; in others, there's a direct engagement with what Shakespeare capacity, or has intended, in South Africa. via investigating the universality of Shakespeare from either implicitly and explicitly ‘southern’ views, the ebook offers new chances for contemplating (and reassessing) moving manifestations of Shakespeare’s paintings in significant Shakespearean ‘centres’ akin to Britain and the us, in addition to around the international North and South.
