Storey argued that there is a political dimension to popular culture; neo-Gramscian hegemony theory "...
sees popular culture as a site of struggle between the 'resistance' of subordinate groups in society and the forces of 'incorporation' operating in the interests of dominant groups in society." A postmodernist approach to popular culture would "no longer recognize the distinction between high and popular culture." Storey claims that popular culture emerges from the urbanization of the Industrial Revolution.
Studies of Shakespeare (by Weimann, Barber, or Bristol, for example) locate much of the characteristic vitality of his drama in its participation in Renaissance popular culture, while contemporary practitioners like Dario Fo and John Mc Grath use popular culture in its Gramscian sense that includes ancient folk traditions (the commedia dell'arte for example).
However, many works straddle the boundaries, e.g., William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens.
