Front Cover
Bloomsbury Academic, 2004 - 296 pages
Adrian Poole's major new study is the first to present a fully comprehensive view of what Shakespeare meant to the Victorian period as a whole. He examines the Victorian's obsession with Shakespeare, his impact upon the era's consciousness, and the expression of this in their drama, novels and poetry. The book features detailed discussion of the interpretations and applications of Shakespeare by major figures such as Dickens and Hardy, Tennyson and Browning, as well as those less well-known.
