Editor:

Graham Holderness, University of Hertfordshire

Shakespeare is everywhere, permeating culture at every level; yet it is less well-recognized that culture also permeates Shakespeare. Shakespeare & explores Shakespeare and his work outside the lens of traditional literary studies. By intersecting the worlds beyond fiction and poetry with those disciplines outside of literature and drama, this series offers nuanced approaches that reveal a more diverse and complex legacy left by Shakespeare.
