“What keeps a great cultural work from the past alive is precisely that capacity to speak to the present through a process of re-interpretation”

Bate considers the crossroads presented by the performance and academic study of the Bard’s work, the business of playwriting, publishing and printing and the historical context of Elizabethan theatre that affect interpretations today.
