Taking a comprehensive, critical, and theoretical approach to the role of Shakespeare in educational policy and pedagogy from 1989 - the year compulsory Shakespeare was introduced under the National Curriculum for English in the United Kingdom - to the present, Shakespeare Valued explores the esteem afforded Shakespeare in the British educational system and its evolution in the twentieth century and into the twenty-first. Sarah Olive offers an unparalleled critical analysis of the ways in which Shakespeare is valued in a range of educational domains in England, which will be essential reading for students and teachers of English and Shakespeare.
