Vested Interests by Marjorie Garber
Book DescriptionBeginning with the bold claim, "There can be no culture without the transvestite," Marjorie Garber explores the nature and significance of cross-dressing and of the West's recurring fascination with it. Rich in anecdote and insight, Vested Interests offers a provocative and entertaining view of our ongoing obsession with dressing up--and with the power of clothes.

This title asks what is at stake in the imputation that 'Shakespeare' did not write the plays, and shows that the plays themselves both thematize and theorize that controversy.
