Colin Burrow makes a powerful case for reconsidering Shakespeare the poet, as opposed to playwright as we often do, and sees this as a very fruitful lens by which to do so especially as in his lifetime it was his poetry he was best known for, in particular 'Venus and Adonis' which was the Early Modern equivalent of a bestseller! Jonathan Gil Harris offers a very thoughtful essay on the ways in which to consider Shakespeare and Race, especially looking at the intersection between portrayals of black characters and Islam black figures often cast as 'moors' and the two terms used interchangeably , as well as what the word 'race' actually meant in the 16th century - it comes from the Latin 'radix' meaning 'root', and was often used to describe family heritage, animal pedigrees, etc.
That's just a flavour of the collection of essays which are in this collection and go from the works themselves, to stagings and reception theory. May 15, Mikael Cerbing rated it really liked it Shelves: literature-studies. This is a brilliant introduction to Shakespeare that covers most of the bases that I would be able to think of when it comes to the Bard.
We have chapters on everything from what he might have read, his different types of plays and poems, race, sexuality to popular culture and media history. I do not know enough about Shakespeare to be able to give critizism on the different chapters, but as an introduction I find it to be a well written and very good book.

It was a good starter. I liked how they broke up the genres and had a seperate chapter on each. The writing was small though :D.

About Margreta de Grazia. Margreta de Grazia.
Her first book Shakespeare Verbatim Oxford, traces the emergence of Shakespeare as a modern author from late eighteenth-century editorial imperatives. Her second book, Hamlet without Hamlet Cambridge, , awarded both the Phyllis Goodhart Gordan Book Prize and the Elizabeth Dietz Award, demonstrates how the modern tradition of psychologizing Hamlet has effaced both the play's and the protagonist's preoccupation with land and entitlement.
