Scotland's Shakespeare: The Cultural Politics of Collecting

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The significant holdings of Shakespeareana and early modern printed drama in both Edinburgh University Library and the National Library of Scotland are a distinctive, even idiosyncratic, outcome of the activities of a disparate group of collectors and Shakespeareans. Prominent among them are a range of well-known figures stretching over four centuries: William Drummond, Mary Wortley Montagu, John Stuart, third Earl of Bute, James Halliwell-Phillipps and John Dover Wilson. This paper will examine the meaning and implications of the collecting of these figures for our understanding of Shakespeare's place in Anglophone cultural life. In particular, the paper will examine their motives in the revealing context of events and commentary associated with the bicentenary, tercentary and quatercentenary of Shakespeare's birth. In doing so, it will offer fresh thoughts and observations on the political configuration of Shakespeare as a national, transnational and international writer.
