New volume on the Globe-to-Globe Festival in London:

Shakespeare Beyond English

Susan Bennett and her co-editor Christie Carson (Royal Holloway University of London) recently published a collection of more than 40 articles on last year’s Globe-to-Globe Festival. Part of London’s 2012 Cultural Olympiad, the Festival offered an unprecedented opportunity to see all of Shakespeare’s plays performed in a six-week period and in languages other than English. This book is the only complete critical record of that event.

Cambridge University Press and Shakespeare’s Globe co-hosted a launch for Shakespeare Beyond English and its editors in the Upper Foyer of the theatre on August 27th, 2013.
