In the nineteenth century, Shakespeare attained unprecedented circulation. On the stage, aquatic and equestrian spectacles vied with antiquarian and original practices productions. On the page, inexpensive editions and articles in the penny press disseminated knowledge of Shakespeare to a general readership while scholars and critics discovered (and invented) facts about his life and works. Papers are invited on any aspect of nineteenth-century Shakespeare (popular or elite, national or international, page or stage).

Abstracts will be available soon.
