    • Abstract:
      Summary: Shakespeare and the Spanish Comedia examines masterpieces of early modern English and Spanish theater with attention to issues of transculturation, translation, interpretation and performance. This collection of essays by highly respected British and American scholars and theater practitioners offers a unique transnational view of two great dramatic traditions in the social contexts in which they were originally created and in which they are presently viewed.
