In Shakespeare’s works characters are frequently banished from court, from the city or their country. Some move voluntary and many make their first appearance with a history of migration. Some yearn for their home, some are glad to escape persecution. Some bemoan the loss of their identity, some embrace a new identity abroad. People are exiled for various reasons, banished from another’s present, from a place, or from memory. Exile may mean a new chance or certain death. Migrants are greeted with hope, with fear, with fierce rejection. In a more abstract sense, Shakespeare’s plays and poems themselves became migrant texts as they were performed by travelling players or otherwise transmitted across time and space.
