Abstract

Paul Daley, writing in The Guardian in November, declares that ‘Australia has reached peak Anzac. And not before time.’ The Australian government’s commemoration of 100 years of ANZAC has drummed home the dates and the events of the war, as well as emphasising certain well-worn sentiments surrounding the service of Anzac servicemen in 1914-18. Antipodal Shakespeare: Remembering and Forgetting in Britain, Australia and New Zealand, 1916-2016, features on its cover a sepia image of Anzacs gathered outside London’s Shakespeare Hut during the war. This sets one to flinching—is this book an example of yet more Anzac commemoration?
