Grotesque visionary Sir Jack Pitman has an idea. Since most people are too lazy to travel from landmark to landmark, why not simplify things and create a new England on the Isle of Wight? Unfortunately, his idea is a huge success, and the resulting theme park threatens to supersede the original. Called England, England, it has all the elements of "Old England" in one convenient location. Wander into the new Sherwood Forest and you may spot Robin Hood and his now sexually ambiguous Merrie Men. Or take a stroll to see Stonehenge and Anne Hathaway's Cottage, enjoy a ploughman's lunch atop the White Cliffs of Dover, then pop over to see the Royals, now on contract to Sir Jack, in their scaled-down version of Buckingham Palace. Every detail has been considered: even the postcards come pre-stamped! Julian Barnes' first novel in six years is a ferociously funny examination of the search for authenticity and truth in a fabricated world. From the Hardcover edition.

Is Shakespeare English, British, neither or both? Addressing from various angles the relation of the national poet/playwright to constructions of England and Englishness, this collection of essays explores the interplay of nation and imagination, first through new readings of particular plays, then through analyses of a range of subsequent appropriations and reorientations of 'Shakespeare' and 'this England' that the plays - in part - produced.
