Classless, tasteless, and unclassifiable uses of Shakespeare, from the Bad Quarto of Hamlet to contemporary "post-queer" same-sex version of "Romeo and Juliet," join each other through this collection of intriguing new essays that capture the essence of what its editors term "Shakespace." An alternative to "appropriation," "Shakespace" describes uses involving not a defined, ideological boundary patrolling but a creative, often dissident or transgressive, social space of transformation.
