Highbrow/Lowbrow: The Emergence of Cultural Hierarchy in America (1988) is a book by Lawrence W. Levine.

Excerpt:

“By the turn of the [nineteenth] century, Shakespeare had been converted from a popular playwright whose dramas were the property of all those who flocked to see them, into a sacred author who had to be protected from ignorant audiences and overbearing actors threatening the integrity of his creations."
