Shakespeare: His Infinite Variety. Celebrating the 400th Anniversary of His Death - ebook/pdf
Krystyna Kujawińska Courtney, Grzegorz Zinkiewicz
Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego
  The great asset of Shakespeare: His Infinite Variety is its wide historical and geographical range - that is, from the time of the Bard himself to the latest metamorphoses of meanings new electronic media made available. Every reader, depending on his/her age and prior experience with Shakespeare, is at a different moment of this great historical-theoretical continuum of world culture. Everyone can also begin one’s own intellectual journey through cultural history - any time, any place. [...] Despite the once popular but now outdated post-truths, history has not ended. This volume testifies to the benefits of combining historical perspective in its fairly elementary version, which is a linear sequence of events, with an in-depth analysis of the transformations in understanding, exhibiting, and using (appropriating) Shakespeare’s works in our rapidly changing reality.

„It is perhaps trivial to say that the personalities and works of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis evoke rather extreme feelings in audiences. Sometimes these emotions are those of deep admiration and fascination, and sometimes, though much less often, those of disgust or even contempt. It is, however, easy to see that sometimes they hardly incite any feelings at all because it certainly is not true that one must feel strongly about these two...
