Originally presented as Seminar Papers in the Dept. of English of M.D. University, Rohtak, at the Annual Shakespeare Conference, organised regularly by the Shakespeare Association, India, the collection of papers under the title Language in Shakespeare: A Postmodern Review are contributed by a select group of Shakespeare scholars who acted as Resource Persons at the Rohtak Seminar held early this year.
Although seemingly restricted to a single aspect of Shakespeare's work, the papers included in the volume cover much that the Bard of Stratford-Upon-Avon has explored in the greatest articulation of the possibilities that the English language offers to great creative writers of Shakespeare's order. I can assure my expected readers that this bunch of select papers would not disappoint anyone looking for fresh ideas and interpretations relevant to the greatest dramatic work (comprising 39 plays) ever created in any of the world languages.
Admitting the narrowness of the limited explorations made in the volume, the editor can assure the eager scholar that the papers collected (actually selected) here will not disappoint in suggesting new possibilities that a seemingly old subject like Language in Shakespeare can offer. The collection intends to pave the way for further explorations into key questions concerning language and literature, scanned through Theories and Philosophies evolved for the specific investigations always at work in the researcher's room.

Students and academicians interested in Shakespeare and English Literature.
