This book presents a series of essays exploring the cultural notion that has come to be known as ''Shakespeare.''´ Shakespeare's collaborators are not only those who were his contemporaries but also those who have given new life to his works in a new garb, be it a play, a theatre production, a film, a TV play, a novel, a museum item, or a collection of illustrated strips.The collection presents papers given at an international conference entitled Shakespeare and His Collaborators over the Centuries, which took place at the Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University (Brno, Czech Republic) on February 8-11, 2006. The individual contributions deal with the notion of collaborating with Shakespeare both in a literal as well as figurative sense. The essays in the first section discuss the literary and cultural milieus which were conducive to the creation of Shakespeare's works. The second part discusses early adaptations and variants of Shakespeare's plays while the third section offers a broader range of artistic (as well as idolatrous) repercussions of the Shakespearean canon.

The wedding in 1613 of Elizabeth Stuart and Elector Palatine Friedrich V was an event of immense diplomatic, confessional, and cultural significance. This volume, the first interdisciplinary treatment of this celebration of Protestant union, is unique in the scope of its approach to the magnificent spectacles, beginning in London and ending in Heidelberg, that were staged to mark the occasion. The study situates the wedding in its broadest context, exploring the pan-Protestant hopes it inspired and the rich cultural exchange it triggered. The editors have assembled a team of international contributors whose wide-ranging expertise integrates the pan-European aspects of the topic in a way that no single monograph could accomplish. The twenty-three contributions introduce new archival and printed source materials, offering a wealth of fresh insights. Among the aspects addressed here are Elizabeth's childhood, the diverse literary expression that accompanied the marriage, and the issue of court ceremonial, in this case with an added gender aspect in that the bride claimed precedence over her husband. Analysis of diplomatic correspondence and city records reveals external views on the alliance. A particular strength of the volume is its polycentric view, showing the connections linking Scotland, Denmark, the Netherlands, and the Palatinate. The detailed scholarship is animated by illustrations, many of them little known.

The Social Life Of Coffee

What induced the British to adopt foreign coffee-drinking customs in the seventeenth century? Why did an entirely new social institution, the coffeehouse, emerge as the primary place for consumption of this new drink? In this lively book, Brian Cowan locates the answers to these questions in the particularly British combination of curiosity, commerce, and civil society. Cowan provides the definitive account of the origins of coffee drinking and coffeehouse society, and in so doing he reshapes our understanding of the commercial and consumer revolutions in Britain during the long Stuart century. Britain’s virtuosi, gentlemanly patrons of the arts and sciences, were profoundly interested in things strange and exotic. Cowan explores how such virtuosi spurred initial consumer interest in coffee and invented the social template for the first coffeehouses. As the coffeehouse evolved, rising to take a central role in British commercial and civil society, the virtuosi were also transformed by their own invention.
