Women on Shakespeare- Towards Commemorating the 450 th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s Birth

Krystyna Kujawinska-Courtney, Izabella Penier and Katarzyna Kwapisz-Williams

«This collection of essays provides new perspectives on reading, reinterpreting, appropriating and popularising Shakespeare through the work of women – actresses, directors, designers, translators and scholars from different cultural, social and political, mostly non-English speaking, contexts. Raising a wide variety of urgent issues relating not only to Shakespeare but also to the arts, to gender matters, and to postcolonial and ethnic studies, this volume advocates both the illumination of the often neglected, forgotten and rarely appreciated women – who deserve the spotlight of attention on an international level – and the need for revisions in Shakespearean studies, which are dominated by cultural sameness of prevalently male professionals.» (Prof. Dr. habil. Bożenna Chylińska, Institute of English Studies, University of Warsaw)
