    Abstract

    The plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries continue to inspire fresh interpretations in every genre and medium. Reinventing the Renaissance: Shakespeare and his Contemporaries in Adaptation and Performance offers new perspectives on the ways in which writers, critics, directors, artists, and other creative practitioners have used Renaissance drama to address current concerns and reach new audiences. As well as exploring the fortunes of Shakespeare and his contemporaries in more expected contexts, such as film and theatre, these essays examine the relationship between the plays and new social media, detective fiction, translation, ballet, and illustration. The collection also reconsiders the boundary which separates critical and creative responses to Shakespeare by including explorations of 'creativity' in Shakespeare's biographers, as well as a creative revisioning of Macbeth. Written by an international team of scholars, this accessible and innovative volume will provide a valuable resource for all readers and researchers interested in the creative reception of Renaissance English drama.
