Shakespeare and Immigration presents a variety of perspectives on the immigrant experience in Shakespearean drama, and the way that attention to the influential nature of the foreigner affects perceptions of community and identity. Offering the first sustained study of the significance of the immigrant and alien experience to our understanding of Shakespeare's work, this volume constitutes a timely, necessary addition to studies of race, ethics, and national identity in Shakespeare -- Provided by publisher.
