This interest is in marked contrast to the surviving information concerning the event: the cause, place and even date of Shakespeare{\textquoteright}s demise are all unknown. Moreover, attention to the mere fact of death adds nothing to knowledge of Shakespeare{\textquoteright}s work; rather it distracts attention. This article surveys the anniversary celebrations in relation to the contrasting life records, arguing that the Anniversary has produced a “Zombie Shakespeare”, a twenty-first century biographical fantasy indicative of commodification rather than literary or creative imagination.
