Remaking the Classics synopsis
This important collection of articles contributes to the expansion of classical reception studies and seeks to expand them. With a focus on Britain in the 19th and 20th centuries, it is seen as a collection of different genres (epic, novel, lyrical, tragedy, political booklet).
Among the published texts examined, the usual range of species being discussed elsewhere is expanded through chapters on children's books, and those on which childhood and childhood memories are known. As well as through a multi-species case study of an unusual subject, Spartacus.
The "reshaping of classics" goes beyond the scope of books to stunning performance, beyond the theater to the radio - a powerful medium and influence from the 1920s to the 1960s that did not explore his role in receiving classics much. The variety of species and media studied in the book is balanced by a focus on Britain in a specific time period, and interplay between the chapters: for example, the three chapters of the 20th century drama.
Performance strategies for post-colonial contexts. Thus the book combines the integration of the field and the attempt to push it in new and exciting directions..
