The Routledge Research Companion to Shakespeare and Classical Literature / Keilen, Sean & Moschovakis, Nick. 400pp, Routledge, 2017:04   9781472417404  Hd150.00

The essays analyze Shakespeare’s specific debts to classical works and weigh his classicism’s likeness and unlikeness to that of others in his time; they also evaluate the effects of that classical influence to assess the extent to which it is connected with whatever qualities still make Shakespeare, himself, a classic (arguably the classic) of modern world literature and drama.
