Shakespeare's Shrine: Invention of Stratford-upon-Avon PB
Shakespeare's Shrine: Bard's Birthplace & Invention of Stratford-upon-Avon
Julia Thomas (Author)
It was clear to Victorians on pilgrimage to Stratford-upon-Avon just who Shakespeare was, how he lived, and to whom he belonged, Thomas writes, and the answers were inseparable from Victorian notions of class, domesticity, and national identity. Shakespeare's Shrine is a richly documented and witty account of how both Shakespeare and the Warwickshire market town of his birth were turned into enduring symbols of British heritage—and of just how closely contemporary visitors to Stratford are following in the footsteps of their Victorian predecessors.
