A Year of Shakespeare gives a uniquely comprehensive, expert and exciting overview of the largest Shakespeare festival the world has ever known: The World Shakespeare Festival, 2012. This is the only book fully to document all 74 productions which formed part of the Festival in 2012 through well-informed, lively and accessible reviews and other short pieces of related interest.
From a Lithuaninan Hamlet, an Israeli Merchant of Venice and Jonathan Pryce's King Lear, this is a rich resource of critical interest to all students and scholars of Shakespeare in performance, global Shakespeare and the adaptation of Shakespeare. Illustrated with images from the productions, the book is also a great read, capturing the vitality and excitement of this extraordinary event.
