Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Alas, poor Shakespeare. Students knew him well before the Age of Aquarius turned into the Information Age. Nowadays, it seems that the study of humanities has taken a backseat to more career-oriented fields such as business and computer science. Brantlinger (English, Indiana Univ.; Crusoe's Footprints) explains why Shakespeare is no longer a focal point of college education. After an introductory chapter outlining the thesis and the contents, Brantlinger takes the reader on an entertaining journey to uncover the truth behind Shakespeare's reputed death. If only the rest of the book were as delightful. Unfortunately, the remainder, filled with theories and studies of various philosophers and scholars, is far more complex and thus less accessible. Brantlinger's exploration of how cultural studies in universities have diminished in accordance with the shifting cultural and societal trends is timely and important, but readers unfamiliar with the study of English literature will glean little. Recommended only for academic and larger public libraries. Terry Christner Hutchinson P.L., KS Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
