Provides a comprehensive survey of approaches to genre in Shakespeare's work. Contributors probe deeply into genre theory and genre history by relating Renaissance conceptions. In this sense, the volume proposes to read Shakespeare through genre and, just as importantly, read genre through Shakespeare.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Shakespeare and Genre focuses readers not only on the methods Shakespeare employed in approaching genre, but also on how our own generic conditioning influences our ability to describe and understand those methods. The line-up of contributors here is stunning. In bringing together scholars interested in how Shakespeare writes/adapts genres and how Shakespearean genres are conceived and re-adapted, this anthology performs work that simply has not been done before.' - Greg Semenza, professor, University of Connecticut

'Genre is an unavoidable topic for anyone interested in Shakespeare and is still one of the central issues in literary criticism. With the help of some of the most distinguished scholars in the fields of Shakespeare, linguistics, performance, film and media studies, Guneratne has produced an incisive, provocative and very rich book. Exploring the borderlands between aesthetic forms, Shakespeare and Genre is also a rare achievement because of its comprehensive approach, which allows the early modern to enter into illuminating dialogue with the postmodern.' - Jean-Christophe Mayer, Senior Research Fellow, French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS)
