Shakespeare’s plays and the critical conversations around them are deeply concerned with questions of culture. Many of the plays are set in cultures different than Shakespeare’s own early modern England, from Denmark to Italy to Ancient Rome, often using those cultures to examine his own.

The culture of Imperial Britain made use of Shakespeare in order to dominate (and often consume) the cultures which they colonized.
