Shakespeare has variously been seen as the last great exponent of pre-modern Western culture, a crucial inaugurator of modernity, and a prophet of postmodernity.

This exciting collection of essays traces the changing reception of Shakespeare over the past four hundred years. Along the way it provides fascinating insights into:

* the nature of individuality, identity, and the self

* the inter-relations of the rise of capitalism, nation-states, and secular culture

* the sexual division of labor and gender identity

* the beginnings of Western colonialism, racism, and anti-Semitism.

This fresh look at Shakespeare's plays is an important contribution to the revival of the idea of 'modernity' and how we periodise ourselves, and Shakespeare, at the beginning of a new millennium.
