Shakespeare in Children's Literature looks at the genre of Shakespeare-for-children, considering both adaptations of his plays and children's novels in which he appears as a character. Drawing on feminist theory and sociology, Hateley demonstrates how Shakespeare for children utilizes the ongoing cultural capital of Shakespeare, and the pedagogical aspects of children's literature, to perpetuate anachronistic forms of identity and authority.
