Shakespeare and Immigration critically examines the vital role of immigrants and aliens in Shakespeare's drama and culture. On the one hand, the essays in this collection interrogate how the massive influx of immigrants during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I influenced perceptions of English identity and gave rise to anxieties about homeland security in early modern England. On the other, they shed light on how our current concerns surrounding immigration shape our perception of the role of the alien in Shakespeare's work and expand the texts in new and relevant directions for a contemporary audience. The essays consider the immigrant experience; strangers and strangeness; values of hospitality in relationship to the foreigner; the idea of a host society; religious refuge and refugees; legal views of inclusion and exclusion; structures of xenophobia; and early modern homeland security. In doing so, this volume offers a variety of perspectives on the immigrant experience in Shakespearean drama and how the influential nature of the foreigner affects perceptions of community and identity; and, collection questions what is at stake in staging the anxieties and opportunities associated with foreigners. Ultimately, Shakespeare and Immigration offers the first sustained study of the significance of the immigrant and alien experience to our understanding of Shakespeare's work. By presenting a compilation of views that address Shakespeare's attention to the role of the foreigner, the volume constitutes a timely and relevant addition to studies of race, ethics, and identity in Shakespeare.

About the Author:

Ruben Espinosa is Assistant Professor of English at the University of Texas at El Paso, USA. David Ruiter is Associate Professor of English at the University of Texas at El Paso, USA.

Review:

'Shakespeare and Immigration has an explicit concern with an urgent contemporary sociopolitical issue. ... This book, with its wide range of reference, would be valuable to anyone interested in immigration, race, and other cross-cultural issues in the early modern period, from advanced undergraduate to experienced scholar, in history as well as literature. Some essays will challenge those who want to see Shakespeare as the genius who always takes the most progressive position, but that very challenge is part of what makes the book pedagogically useful as well as full of groundbreaking scholarship.' Renaissance Quarterly
