Jennifer Page, Northwestern Oklahoma State University

I am seeking essays for a proposed collection for Routledge, titled "Shakespeare's 'Mortal Living Ghost(s)': Supernatural Appropriations and Afterlives." The collection will take a broad approach to rethinking Shakespeare's use of the supernatural as well as how subsequent authors and artists have interpreted Shakespeare's image and/or works vis-à-vis the supernatural. Interdisciplinary approaches are welcome.
