Cím/Title (ENG): Shakespeare Matrix Across the Continent (Nicoleta Cinpoeş, Florence March, Paul Prescott, eds: Shakespeare on European Festival Stages)

The volume offers a representative collection of Shakespeare festivals from the European continent in the form of individual case studies. The book makes the case for a “pan-European and post-English” Shakespeare by providing evaluative and interpretative accounts of both well-known and less-focused festivals in Eastern and Western Europe. The essays combine an external, objective eye with an internal perspective, in just the right balance. Shakespeare on European Festival Stages is a high-quality travel companion, providing a brand-new Shakespearean Grand Tour for all interested theatre scholars and theatre-goers.
