‘Those Danes are obsessed with the Bard of Avon’..


Or at least this is what The Guardian’s Julia Raeside claims in a review of the Danish TV series 1864 shown this year on BBC4.. I think she’s probably right, but why do the Danes refer to Shakespeare again and again? I tried to answer (or at least reiterate) that question at the recent international conference on Shakespeare and Scandinavia at The Rose Theatre, Kingston.. Recording available here..
