A collection of writings on Shakespeare by over 40 prominent Americans, spanning the period between the War of Independence and the outbreak of World War I. Featured writers include: Ralph Waldo Emerson, Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Abraham Lincoln, Walt Whitman and Mark Twain. The essays are arranged in chronological order and provide a conspectus of American attitudes to Shakespeare, from the early empiricist approaches of the Shakespeare Society to the idealist vision of the poet held by later 19th-century critics. The bizarre contribution to the Shakespeare debate by Delia Bacon is exemplified by the inclusion of her 1856 article which is reprinted in entirety. The book charts the emergence of an American literary tradition and the gradual appropriation of Shakespeare as part of the American search for cultural identity; an identity which now appears poised to dominate the 21st century.
