Description

Victorian Shakespeare (Volume 1): Theatre, Drama, Performance ranges widely across the variety of Victorian theatrical spaces and forms in examining the ways in which the production of Shakespeare fundamentally informs the changing nature and status of the Victorian theatre. It considers the performance spaces of the legitimate theatre, but also looks at burlesques and parodies, the cultural and political spaces of the 1832 Select Committee on Dramatic Literature, the artistic realm of Shakespeare illustrations and theatre posters, and Shakespeare's presence in nineteenth-century Europe and America.
