Summary
"In this illustrated book, one of the foremost Shakespeareans of our time explores the ways in which Shakespeare has been imagined from his time to ours. In wide-ranging discussions of plays as disparate as Henry V, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Merchant of Venice, and The Winter's Tale, six richly detailed chapters anatomize the changing nature of dramatic representation over the centuries. Drawing on performance history, textual history and the visual arts, including a fascinating chapter on Shakespearean portraiture, Imagining Shakespeare displays throughout the cultural versatility, elegance, lucidity, and wit which have become the hallmarks of Stephen Orgel's style."--BOOK JACKET
