Shakespeare in America is a lively account of America's embracing of Shakespeare's works in print and in performance from colonial times to the present. It describes American scholarly attention to Shakespeare (criticism, editions of the plays, secondary school and collegiate curricula) and light-hearted attention (burlesques, musical comedies, kitsch). The book highlights major contributors, including actors, editors, writers, pedagogues, and impresariosto Shakespeare's popularity in America, as well as organizations for the study or performance of Shakespeare, such as summer festivals, professional associations, research libraries, and Shakespeare clubs.Twenty illustrations enhance this survey of the multiple ways that American culture has embraced the English dramatist and poet.
