Review quote

"Every essay is useful....there are enough gems in there.... to make the book a worthwhile purchase for anyone interested in modernism, Shakespeare, performance and the culture industry.."-Magazine of Shakespeare's Globe "I have personally purchased and studied every one of the new Accents on Shakespeare volumes in the new series edited by Terence Hawkes and repeatedly turn to them as resources for my own research and teaching. My students - graduate and undergraduate alike - find them invaluable, as I do. They are remarkably comprehensive, timely, and informative, and essential way to keep current with the fundamental ideas in Shakespearean criticism."-Arthur F. Kinney, Thomas W. Copeland Professor of Literary History, University of Massachusetts, Amherst "Accents on Shakespeare is shaping up as everything a streetwise series of books on the Bard should be: engaged, imaginative, heretical and occasionally outrageous. No one who aims to have their finger on the pulse of Shakespeare studies can afford to ignore it."-Kiernan Ryan Professor of English, Royal Holloway, University of London and Fellow of New Hall, University of Cambridge
