Overview

Eighteen essays from international academics represent a sampling of current trends in Shakespearean scholarship. They deal with themes such as religion, race, and ethnicity, as well as theatrical and textual practices. The volume opens with a discussion of various critical attempts to reframe Shakespeare's plays in the context of religious concerns. Other topics include (for example) ethnic fallacies in Shakespeare criticism; the study of Shakespeare's use of formulaic moral phrases from the classical tradition; and metrical considerations when translating Shakespeare into Japanese.
