Abstract "This book addresses the memory of Rome: the dialectic between the glorious historical past of the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire and its echoes, representations and interpretations in the works of Shakespeare. The essays explore multiple layers of time and place in relation to Shakespearean plays: throughout the world (from Romania to Japan), through the centuries, in the arts (paintings, music) and in dramatic performances. Individual essays (by Michel Dobson, Peter Holland, Alessandro Serpieri, Richard Wilson, among others) address multiple aspects of the complex relationship between two countries (England and Italy) and two moments in time (Ancient Roman and the Early Modern periods). Essays include the analysis of less studied works (e.g. Cymbeline), rewritings of Roman narratives (e.g. Titus Andronicus and The Rape of Lucrece), modern enactments of Shakespearean performances around the world, the representation of the Shakespearean myths in Renaissance paintings, and the music accompanying the text of Roman plays"-- Provided by publisher.
