Shakespeare and national identity: a dictionary

Ivic, C (2017) Shakespeare and national identity: a dictionary. Bloomsbury, London. ISBN 9781472534347

Abstract

The Arden Shakespeare Dictionary on 'Shakespeare and National Identity' makes a timely and valuable contribution to the discipline. National identity in the early modern period is a central topic of scholarly investigation; it is also a dominant topic in classroom instruction and discussion. More than any other early modern playwright, Shakespeare (especially his history plays) is at the heart of recent critical investigations into a host of relevant topics: borders, history, identity, land, memory, nation, place and space. This dictionary works through Shakespeare's plays and the cultural moment in which they were produced to provide a rich and informative account of such topics.
