Shakespeare and Eastern Europe

Zdenek Stribrny

Oxford Shakespeare Topics

Oxford Shakespeare Topics (General Editors Peter Holland and Stanley Wells) provide students, teachers, and interested readers with short books on important aspects of Shakespeare criticism and scholarship, including some general anthologies relating to Shakespeare.

This fascinating and broad-ranging account explores for the first time Shakespeare's impact across Eastern Europe, from the tours of the English Comedians in his own time to today. It describes his profound influence on Russian literature and criticism, and his major role in the national revivals from Poland and the Czech lands to Serbia and Bulgaria, and shows how his plays were appropriated for political ends but also how his humanism became an increasingly inspiring voice of dissent.
