Cultural Shakespeare: Essays in the Shakespeare Myth
This volume brings together a collection of Graham Holderness's writings on such topics as Shakespeare and national culture; the Shakespeare industry; and the Shakespeare Myth. Published in books and journals between 1985 and 1997, these celebrated essays constitute a resource for the study of Shakespeare as a cultural phenomenon or ideological apparatus, as distinct from Shakespeare the poet and playwright.
