  • Shakespeare's Authentic Performance Textsby Graham Watts

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2015; US$ 45.00

    When we pick up a copy of a Shakespeare play, we assume that we hold in our hands an original record of his writing. We don't. Present-day printings are an editor's often subjective version of the script. Around 25 percent of any Shakespeare play will have been altered, and this creates an enormous amount of confusion. The only authentic edition... more...

    Shakespeare, Our Contemporary  is a provocative, original study of the major plays of Shakespeare.

  • King Lear and the Godsby William R. Elton

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 19.95

    Many critics hold that Shakespeare's King Lear is primarily a drama of meaningful suffering and redemption within a just universe ruled by providential higher powers. William Elton's King Lear and the Gods challenges the validity of this widespread optimistic view. Testing the prevailing view against the play's acknowledged sources, and analyzing... more...

  • The Re-Imagined Textby Jean I. Marsden

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Shakespeare's plays were not always the inviolable texts they are almost universally considered to be today. The Restoration and eighteenth century committed what many critics view as one of the most subversive acts in literary history -- the rewriting and restructuring of Shakespeare's plays. Many of us are familiar with Nahum Tate's "audacious"... more...

  • Shakespeare and the Poet's Lifeby Gary Schmidgall

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Shakespeare and the Poet's Life explores a central biographical question: why did Shakespeare choose to cease writing sonnets and court-focused long poems like The Rape of Lucrece and Venus and Adonis and continue writing plays? Author Gary Schmidgall persuasively demonstrates the value of contemplating the professional reasons Shakespeare... more...

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 104.95

    At the turn of the seventeenth century, Hristomir Stanev argues, ideas about the senses became part of a dramatic and literary tradition in England, concerned with the impact of metropolitan culture. Drawing upon an archive of early modern dramatic and prose writings, and on recent interdisciplinary studies of sensory perception, Stanev here studies... more...
