Abstract

'Still Shakespeare' considers the afterlives of Shakespeare’s plays in relation to the history of photography, looking at the relationship between photography and performance and how photographs have shaped interpretations of Shakespeare’s plays. It is the first scholarly book devoted to Shakespeare and photography, arguing that photography has played a key role in the dissolution of Shakespeare's works into a collage of images and quotations. The book seeks to make connections between current discussions in Shakespeare studies around liveness and performance archives and canonical work on the history and theory of photography, including that of Walter Benjamin and Roland Barthes.
