Stellifying Shakespeare: Celestial Imperialism and the Advent of Universal Genius

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An essay on the portrayal of William Shakespeare's apotheosis as a by-product of imperialism is presented. It offers the stellification of Shakespeare which depends on the arrival of a pan-European Romantic critical discourse. The author mentions that Shakespeare's universality is determined on Great Britain's geo-political strike.
