Catalog Shakespeare in America
William Shakespeare would surely be pleased, and probably surprised, at how Americans have embraced his plays, sonnets and poems. "Shakespeare in American Life" celebrates the Bard's influence on American culture and the Folger Library's 75th Anniversary. This marvelously illustrated catalog reveals a myriad of ways in which Americans have made Shakespeare their own: from colonization to the present day, in political rhetoric and satire, stage performance, music, film, poetry, education, and collecting.
