Shakespeare, Race and Performance: The Diverse Bard (Hardback)Delia Jarrett-Macauley (editor)
- We can order this from the publisher
What does it mean to study Shakespeare within a multicultural society? And who has the power to transform Shakespeare?
The Diverse Bard explores how Shakespeare has been adapted by artists born on the margins of the Empire, and how actors of Asian and African-Caribbean origin are being cast by white mainstream directors. It examines how notions of 'race' define the contemporary British experience, including the demands of traditional theatre, and it looks at both the playtexts themselves and contemporary productions.
Editor Delia Jarrett-Macauley assembles a stunning collection of classic texts and new scholarship by leading critics and practitioners, to provide the first comprehensive critical and practical analysis of this field.
