How has Shakespeare been made to serve particular political perspectives? To what extent can a modern construct of ‘Shakespeare’ be used in resisting against far-Right organisations such as the British National Party (BNP)? And, what role can teaching play in these processes? This essay investigates the ways in which the far right in particular has used Shakespeare in the past and the present.
