    What can the Globe Theatre tell us about performing Shakespeare?

  • Shakespeare, Popularity and the Public Sphereby Jeffrey S. Doty

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 80.00

  • Identity, Otherness and Empire in Shakespeare's Romeby Maria Del Sapio Garbero

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Contributors to this collection delve into the relationship between Rome and Shakespeare. They view the presence of Rome in Shakespeare's plays not simply as an unquestioned model of imperial culture, or a routine chapter in the history of literary influence, but rather as the problematic link with a distant and foreign ancestry which is both revered... more...

  • Enchantment and Dis-enchantment in Shakespeare and Early Modern Dramaby Nandini Das; Nick Davis

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    This volume addresses dealings with the wondrous, magical, holy, sacred, sainted, numinous, uncanny, auratic, and sacral in the plays of Shakespeare and contemporaries, produced in an era often associated with the irresistible rise of a thinned-out secular rationalism. By starting from the literary text and looking outwards to social, cultural, and... more...

  • Pseudonymous Shakespeareby Penny McCarthy

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    An investigation into modes of early modern English literary 'indirection,' this study could also be considered a detective work on a pseudonym attached to some late sixteenth-century works. In the course of unmasking 'R.L.', McCarthy scrutinizes devices employed by writers in the Sidney coterie: punning, often across languages; repetitio-insistence... more...

  • Shakespeare?s Theatre of Warby Nicholas de Somogyi

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    The period between 1585 (when Elizabeth formally committed her military support to the Dutch wars against Spain) and 1604 (when James at last brought it to an end) was one in which English life was preoccupied by the menace and actuality of war. The same period spans English drama?s coming of age, from Tamburlaine to Hamlet. In this thought-provoking... more...

  • Shakespeare and the Eighteenth Centuryby Peter Sabor; Paul Yachnin

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    In 1700, Shakespeare was viewed as one of the leading Renaissance playwrights, but not as supreme. By 1800, he was not only widely performed and read but celebrated as a universal genius and a national literary hero. What happened during the intervening years is the subject of this fascinating volume, which brings together Renaissance and eighteenth-century... more...

  • Shakespeare?s Troilus and Cressida and the Inns of Court Revelsby W.R. Elton

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    ?No one of Shakespeare?s plays is harder to characterize?, said Coleridge of Troilus and Cressida. Over the centuries, generations of critics have faced the challenge of determining exactly what sort of play Shakespeare?s Troilus and Cressida is. Described by Victorian commentators as ?dark?, ?decadent? and ?bitter?, the work has, until now, retained... more...
