Shakespeare, National Origins, and Originality (Collected papers) Submit by April, 30

updated: 
Monday, March 9, 2015 - 7:16pm
Multicultural Shakespeare Journal

Shakespeare continues to feature in the construction and refashioning of national cultures and identities in a variety of original forms. Recent discussions about originality, now and then, have forced us to re-assess what we mean by Shakespeare, for originality not only travels backwards in time to a (perhaps mythologized) point of an "origin" but also refers to the "original" interpretation of Shakespeare today, one that–by definition of its newness–disrupts the continuity of tradition, and provides a transversal glimpse of a differential perspective. In the light of these views that demand a re-valuation of Shakespeare as original author, we need to rethink the idea of "Shakespeare originality".
