Review:

"Richly researched and clearly written, the book makes a strong contribution to the growing body of work on Shakespeare and the Victorian period." South Atlantic Review

"Schoch's splendid book should inspire others to examine burlesque as a background to more familiar works." Studies in English Literature

"Schoch has covered much ground in this complex and well-written book..." Essays in Theatre

"One of the most useful aspects of this study is its consideration of the triangulation of historicized dramaturgy, national identity, and emancipatory rhetoric in mid-Victorian Britain....critically sophisticated." Shakespeare Quarterly

"...interesting...provocative ideas..." Choice

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This book explores the revivals of Shakespeare s history plays during the Victorian period, as staged by the famous actor-manager Charles Kean. Between 1852 and 1859, Kean produced celebrated productions of Henry V, Henry VIII, King John, Macbeth and Richard II, renowned for their unprecendented attention to antiquarian detail in sets, costumes, and properties (many of which are shown in the book s illustrations).
