Abstract

Today a thriving area of research interest, the relationship between Shakespeare and the Classics has aroused mixed feelings in the past. While never denying the indebtedness to the cultural and literary history of classical Rome and Greece, scholarship has long tended to present English drama as substantially free from the auctoritas of classical antiquity, and stress Shakespeare's individual and original voice. This book free from a Comparative Literature postgraduate seminar held at the Department of Studi Umanistici of the University of Turin, and devoted to recent studies in classical reception. The focus was Shakespeare's reception of the Greek and Latin culture. Basing the work on the essays by Charles Martindale, A.B. Taylor, and Jonathan Bate, a group of young scholars explored how the various patterns of the classical world influenced Shakespeare's thought, imagery, and style, and his sense of performance
