The Afterlives of Shakespeare’s Original Stage Conditions: From Boston to Seoul
Yu Jin Ko is Professor of English at Wellesley College, where he teaches Shakespeare, Studies in Fiction, and Writers of Color, among other topics. He is the author of Mutability and Division on Shakespeare’s Stage (2004) and co-editor of Shakespeare’s Sense of Character: On the Page and From the Stage. His articles and reviews continue to focus on Shakespeare in performance, both in the theater and on film, and include an essay on a production of Macbeth by inmates of a correctional institution. More recently, Ko has moved into the area of Shakespeare in Asia and “The Site of Burial in Two Korean Hamlets.”
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
