2. - Shakespeare in Performance

from The Year’s Contributions to Shakespeare Studies

Summary

The title of Thomas Cartelli’s Reenacting Shakespeare in the Shakespeare Aftermath: The Intermedial Turn and Turn to Embodiment calls for some clarification, which is provided in due course. Cartelli addresses the question of exactly what it is in which our ‘faith’ must be ‘awaked’ for Shakespeare’s plays ‘to engage their receivers/audiences with the kind of “nervous novelty” they presumably brought to the Elizabethan stage when Shakespeare himself took old matter and remixed it into new theatrical blends’ (17).
