The picture of Spanish Shakespeare has been greatly conditioned by the culture in which he was misappropriated in particular forms. Shakespeares reception has been a process of acculturation which includes assimilation, cultural fusion, and a new synthesis of cultural elements. Culture has become a clue to understanding the rise and growth of Shakespeare in Spain where he represented a literary otherness which threatened the essence of Spanish culture, as he "merely continues to signify Englishness".
