Summary Being a cultural hero isn't easy. From his own day to ours, William Shakespeare has had his fair share of mockers, debunkers, and deconstructors, not to mention fans who don't equate admiration with reverence. All of them put in an appearance and get their say in this lively album of images and texts from the Folger collection.
