A landmark in the renewal of comparative literature as a discipline.
          --MLA Scaglione Prize

  [The book] offers a model for theorizing cross-cultural entanglements that goes beyond its specific subject matter. Highly recommended.

  The most innovative monograph.
          -- SEL Studies in English Literature 1500-1900

I hope that Shakespeare scholars around the world will take a look at this book and consider the global impact of Shakespeare outside the West.
