This work assembles a composite picture of Shakespeare's afterlives in media and cultural imagination. Each essay in this collection provides new insight about how our understanding of Shakespeare has changed after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Theorists Harry Berger Jr., Slavoj Zizek, Linda Charnes, Richard Burt and Walter Davis contribute essays that tackle the major philosophical questions that are raised when we think about Shakespeare in the light of the world changing events of 9/11. Celebrated Shakespearean scholars such as Elizabeth Bellamy, Hugh Grady, Jonathan Gil Harris, Graham Holderness, and Bryan Reynolds have each provided thought-provoking responses that individually investigate the impact of 9/11 on our understanding of specific Shakespeare plays. Finally the poets Tom Sleigh (winner of the Kingsley Tufts award) and Robert Polito (a National Book Critics Circle award winner) join Graham Holderness in providing poems that serve as an artistic frame to what is without question a major publishing event for all intellectuals who have a vibrant interest in Shakespeare.

Review:

"...a must-read for Shakespeareans and, indeed, anyone interested in the long history of religious violence in the modern age. This volume's many points of entry into the legacies of 9/11 should provoke further conversations about the class of politics and theology on early modern and contemporary world stages." (Prof. Graham Hammill SUNY at Buffalo)"
