|Abstrakt EN:||The article explores a connection between significant socio-political events and the choice and interpretation of Shakespeare?s plays in the Czech lands during the Great War. It focuses on the Shakespeare Festival held at the National Theatre in Prague 1916. A chronological perspective is used to argue that Shakespearean productions at the time acted as a specific reflection of the Czech world of politics. The article furthermore attempts to trace specific aspects of selected productions of Shakespeare?s works (e.g. 1,2 Henry IV, Hamlet, Macbeth, etc.) in the Czech national context.|
