The prevailing image of Shakespeare derives from the Romantics. We examine both what the Romantics have done to Shakespeare and what they have done for him. We will look at the shift of outlook from Johnson to Coleridge, along with changes in the way Shakespeare's texts have been edited. The aim is to see current attitudes to Shakespeare as a mix of time-bound prejudice and durable intuition.
