A collection of essays on Shakespeare Jubilees around the
world from 1769 to 2014, ranging from the elaborate
celebrations in Shakespeare’s hometown to more modest
festivities elsewhere; from ambitious, theatrical, and
politically loaded demonstrations to nationally coloured,
culturally distinct and idiosyncratic commemorations. The
variety of ways in which geographically distant countries
have remembered Shakespeare has never before been the object
of a comparative study. We hope that the essays in this
collection will throw new light on Shakespeare as a shared
international heritage.
