Shakespeare died in England. He did so without setting foot on Italian
soil. However, his universe of Italian plays, characters and settings has
fascinated scholars over centuries. Assimilating past and recent
developments in the field of intertextual studies, this volume offers a
thorough access to the playwright’s multi-faceted Italian world,
attempting a new perspective of all relevant issues involved. Believed to
be the cradle of the Renaissance, but also the home of poisoning and
intrigue, the Italian otherness was at all times a breathtaking stage

Born in Kirn, Benedikt Höttemann studied English and French language and
literature at the universities of Trier (Germany) and Lille (France).
Upon completion of his studies in September 2008, he started his PhD.
Currently, he is teaching English and French at a German high school.
