Novel Shakespeares: Twentieth-century Women Novelists and Appropriation
Much recent contemporary fiction by women has appropratied themes and plot structures found in Shakespearean drama; "Novel Shakespeare" is an innovative study of a number of these texts. Environmental theory, the Hollywood and Bollywood film industries, detective fiction, children's literature, and the politics of postcolonialsim, are examined. Offering stimulating critical analyses for students of Shakespeare, contemporary fiction, and gender studies, this work provides a pertinent introduction to the emergent genre of appropriation.
