It is nearly two centuries since the first quarto of Hamlet was rediscovered, yet there is still no consensus about its relationship to the second quarto. Indeed, the first quarto, the least frequently read Hamlet, has been dismissed as "corrupt," "inferior" or like "a mutilated corpse," even though in performance it has... more...

Only recently have scholars begun to note Cavendishs references to God, spirits, and the rational soul, and little has been published in this regard. This volume addresses that scarcity by taking up the theological threads woven into Cavendishs ideas about Nature, matter, magic, governance, and social... more...
