Summary:
"Memory and commemoration play a vital role not only in the work of Shakespeare, but also in the process that has made him a world author. As the contributors of this collection demonstrate, the phenomenon of commemoration has no single approach, as it occurs on many levels, has a long history, and is highly unpredictable in its manifestations. With an international focus and a comparative scope that explores the afterlives also of other artists, this volume shows the diverse modes of commemorative practices involving Shakespeare. Delving into these "cultures of commemoration," it presents keen insights into the dynamics of authorship, literary fame, and afterlives in its broader socio-historical contexts"-- Provided by publisher.
