    Abstract:
    This collection of critical redefinitions of Shakespeare’s works proves his popularity nowadays and the volume aims at giving new critical perspectives of his plays and non-dramatic works and thus marks 400 years of his death. The authors presented here observe Shakespeare delineating his plays as both theatrical and literary pieces; they compare his writings to those of his contemporaries and try to precisely position him either as Jacobean or Elizabethan; his works are studies in translation in different languages, which gives another dimension and deeper analyses of his literary merits and linguistic means utilised; the authors of this volume also inspect present-day perception and cognition of his works, which emphasises the importance of his works for the contemporary readership; linguistic inspection of Shakespeare’s language sheds new light on the meaning of his works, while close readings of some of his plays reveal new interpretative possibilities and nuances of meaning.
