Shakespeare, Sort Of

"O, reform it altogether!"

​​The student writers of the Shakespeare, Sort Of series were given a task: journey to UW–Madison’s Special Collections Library and dig into archival materials to reveal something surprising or intriguing about how one Shakespearean character has been reimagined in the past 400 years. 


The result: nine essays that travel across time, investigate adaptations, describe personal epiphanies, and illuminate the persistence of Shakespeare in our times. 


Shakespeare, Sort Of asks: What does Shakespeare mean to us? How has he challenged and inspired artists of other genres? And what do we find when we handle the things of the past?

Shakespeare, Sort Of is co-edited by Thom Van Camp & Marek Makowski.
