John Elsom's book presents an edited and highly readable account of a public seminar held in honor of the twenty-fifth anniversary of Jan Kott's influential study, "Shakespeare Our Contemporary "which pointed out the topical connections between Shakepeare's plays and the world of the 1960s.
Lively and witty, the book has much to tell us about our various perceptions of Shakespeare, and will appeal to theatre enthusiasts and Shakespeare fans in general, as well as to theatre students.
