"A unique addition to the Shakespearean canon, this book begins where most Shakespeare stories end, with his death in 1616. Jack Lynch has written the definitive biography of William Shakespeare's afterlife - two hundred years during which Shakespeare grew from a modestly successful provincial playwright to the lofty status of transcendent genius at the heart of English culture." "Becoming Shakespeare recounts the long and winding posthumous road down which the Bard's reputation traveled. Beginning with the revival of his plays, continuing through the decades when his work was co-opted and "improved upon" by politicians and other playwrights, this story culminates with the bardolatry of the Stratford celebration of Shakespeare's three-hundredth birthday in 1864. Becoming Shakespeare is essential reading not only for his ardent fans, but also for anyone interested in celebrity and the often complicated path from obscurity to fame."--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

A great study of the afterlife of Shakespeare, with the following chapter topics: reviving, performing, studying, improving, co-opting, domesticating, forging, and worshipping. If you have any interest at all in how "Shakespeare became Shakespeare," you'll find this very much a worthwhile read. ( )

A deeply enjoyable history of the first two hundred and fifty years after Shakespeare's death, exploring exactly how the man went from a middling-to-good poet of the Elizabethan theatres to the Swan of Avon. As I'm particularly interested in the early eighteenth century, I found a lot of interesting tidbits. And I now have a morbid curiosity to see the happy-ending Lear. ( )
