Summary This book is a collection of interdisciplinary essays that explores the complex relationship between one of the most celebrated icons of the British establishment with Irish literary and cultural traditions. The volume begins by addressing representations of Ireland in Shakespearian and English Renaissance drama, followed by a focus on Irish writer's responses to Shakespeare. The final section considers Shakespeare in his Irish educational, linguistic, editorial and theatrical manifestations. -- Publisher description
