Painting Shakespeare Red: An East-European Appropriation

Portada
This study deals wih the approriation of Shakespeare for the needs of communist ideology. While primarily concentrating on the uses of his dramatic work in Bulgaria, it places his experience in the East-European context.

It shows how Shakespeare in the theater gradually managed to escape the constraints of ideology and became a strong oppositional voice.
