The vitality of our culture is still often measured by the status Shakespeare has within it. Contemporary readers and writers continue to exploit Shakespeare's cultural afterlife in a vivid and creative way. This fascinating collection of original essays shows how writers' efforts to imitate, contradict, compete with, and reproduce Shakespeare keep him in the cultural conversation.
The essays:
* analyze the methods and motives of Shakespearean appropriation
* investigate theoretically the return of the repressed author in discussions of Shakespeare's cultural function
* put into dialogue theoretical and literary responses to Shakespeare's cultural authority
* analyze works ranging from nineteenth century to the present, and genres ranging from poetry and the novel to Disney movies.
