About the Book:

Shakespeare's works are now performed for an increasingly diversified cultural market. At the start of the twenty-first century, film, video and live performance have overtaken the printed book as the main ways in which people are introduced to Shakespeare. Therefore, is there any reason to ask people to read Shakespeare's plays anymore?

The essays in the volume Shakespeare and Modern Theatre explore this question and the institutional practices that shape contemporary performances of Shakespeare's plays. The book gathers together a particularly strong line-up of contributors from across the literary-performative divide to examine the relationship between Shakespeare, the culture industries, modernism and live performance.

What people say:

"A worthwhile purchase for anyone interested in modernism, Shakespeare, performance and the culture industry." — The Magazine of Shakespeare's Globe
