9780521630221: Performing Shakespeare in the Age of Empire

During the nineteenth century, the performance of Shakespeare's plays contributed to the creation of a sense of British nationhood at home and overseas. In this book Richard Foulkes explores the political and social uses of Shakespeare through the nineteenth and into the twentieth century and the movement from the consideration of Shakespeare as an enterprise to that of enshrinement as a cultural icon. An examination of leading Shakespearian actors, managers and directors, from Britain and abroad, is also included in the study.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. During the nineteenth century the performance of Shakespeare s plays contributed significantly to the creation of a sense of British nationhood at home and overseas. This was achieved through the enterprise of the commercial theatre rather that state subsidy and institutions. Britain had no National Theatre, but Shakespeare s plays were performed up and down the land from the fashionable West End to the suburbs of the capital and the expanding industrial conurbations to the north. British actors travelled the world to perform Shakespeare s plays, while foreign actors regarded success in London as the ultimate seal of approval. In this book, Richard Foulkes explores the political and social uses of Shakespeare through the nineteenth and into the twentieth century and the movement from the business of Shakespeare as an enterprise to that of enshrinement as a cultural icon. An examination of leading Shakespearean actors, managers and directors, from Britain and abroad, is also included in the study. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780521630221
