The essays collected in this volume are evidence that in contemporary parlance the notion of ‘money’ is often connected with the idea of global economy and ‘cultural globalization’: they prompt awareness of the growing importance of collapsed trade barriers, but also of the close and complex relationship between economic and political power and culture in a historical perspective.
Shakespeare’s characters and stories played an important role in his own time when a new system of mercantile economy was developing out of geographical discoveries, and Common Law was trying to keep pace with current debates and regulations aimed at facilitating commerce. It is not surprising that economic themes, motifs and language rank high among the pressing cultural concerns to which Shakespeare gave shape in his works. This rapid, dramatic rise to prominence of economic questions is reflected in the pervasive monetary subtext of Shakespeare’s language and the baffling ubiquitousness of economic metaphors in his plays and poems.
Today, globalization has contributed to move to the foreground the intercultural dimension to the reproduction and consumption of Shakespeare, a process that is clearly registered in the growing relevance taken on by the ‘new’ economic criticism and the new writings of his uniquely cosmopolitan afterlife.
