13 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 1,465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kinney argues that Shakespeare composed his plays by utilising networks of meanings and in this we can see a harbinger of modern information technology. Kinney looks in detail at mirrors, maps, clocks and books as they appear in the plays and explores the ways in which networks of meaning are constructed around them
A companion to Renaissance drama by Arthur F Kinney( Book )

40 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 1,426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This expansive, inter-disciplinary guide to Renaissance plays and the world they played to gives readers a colorful overview of England's great dramatic age. In its pages, today's best Renaissance scholars chart the cross-currents of belief and daily experience that illuminate the meaning of works by Marlowe, Jonson, Middleton or Webster, as it has changed over time, place and audience. They explain why the plays do or say what they do, and raise provocative possibilities of what the plays might have said to Tudor and Stuart playgoers by discussing values, attitudes, and the material conditions of performance, along with the lives and particular ideas of individual playwrights."--Publisher's description
Dorothy Parker by Arthur F Kinney( Book )

15 editions published between 1978 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A critical and appreciative reassessment of the work of Parker. The author briefly examines her life and the influences on her writings, and then discusses her works in more detail. He argues that her poetry, fiction, and criticism reveal language of a dialogic nature, and that what many have seen as monotonal and trivial in her work is in fact a compound of confused and complicated voicings. What is most evident in Parker's work, he contends, is the admission of irresolution, and not evidence of ignorance. Annotation (by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.)

Shakespeare by stages : an historical introduction by Arthur F Kinney( )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this text, Arthur F. Kinney introduces students to Shakespeare's plays in the context of Elizabethan and Jacobean theater. He focuses on the material conditions of playing and of playgoing in order to show how they both inspired and restricted Shakespeare's art." "Subjects treated range from the venues where Shakespeare's plays were first performed, and the practicalities of the acting profession, to the composition of audiences, and the cultural and regulatory contexts in which companies of players operated. Each topic is discussed in relation to a diverse selection of Shakespeare's plays as well as contemporary documents, so that the plays and the theatrical world in which they were produced constantly illuminate one another. A core of twenty-two plays is considered in total."--Jacket
Shakespeare, computers, and the mystery of authorship by D. H Craig( )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Craig, Kinney and their collaborators confront the main unsolved mysteries in Shakespeare's canon through computer analysis of Shakespeare's and other writers' styles. In some cases their analysis confirms the current scholarly consensus, bringing long-standing questions to something like a final resolution. In other areas the book provides more surprising conclusions: that Shakespeare wrote the 1602 additions to The Spanish Tragedy, for example, and that Marlowe along with Shakespeare was a collaborator on Henry VI, Parts 1 and 2. The methods used are more wholeheartedly statistical, and computationally more intensive, than any that have yet been applied to Shakespeare studies. The book also reveals how word patterns help create a characteristic personal style. In tackling traditional problems with the aid of the processing power of the computer, harnessed through computer science, and drawing upon large amounts of data, the book is an exemplar of the new domain of digital humanities

Go down, Moses : the miscegenation of time by Arthur F Kinney( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Go Down, Moses is one of William Faulkner's most direct and powerful assessments of race relations in America. In this compelling study, Arthur F. Kinney asserts that it is also his most personal - and perhaps most important - novel. Composed of seven complete stories spanning several generations in Faulkner's fictitious Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi, the book's structure is deceptively simple. Indeed, Faulkner's publisher incorrectly printed the first edition with the title Go Down, Moses and Other Stories, until Faulkner insisted that the work be treated as a novel. Together, the stories' multiple viewpoints create a complex mosaic of the McCaslin family, whose white and mulatto branches are the product of several defining instances of miscegenation. The illicit mixing of races creates a repeating pattern of ambiguous and morally compromised relationships in which master and slave can be blood relatives, leaving later generations to struggle against a legacy of exploitation that sears the psyches - and the landscape - of the American South. The book's longest episode, "The Bear," which in altered form has become one of Faulkner's best-known short works, poignantly demonstrates how the dehumanizing effects of ownership also alienate people from nature and ultimately from themselves. A radical departure in form and content from the nostalgic plantation novels once common in southern fiction, Go Down, Moses provides an honest and penetrating appraisal of the slave economy and racial domination from the plantation era to the dawn of the civil rights movement. Kinney presents numerous historical documents and offers concrete details from Faulkner's life that show how Faulkner accurately re-created his region's history in his fiction. Kinney also reviews evidence suggesting that Faulkner's own ancestors may have provided the model for the McCaslin's miscegenation. A chronology uniting the novel's seven stories into a single sequence of events provides evidence for a central argument in Kinney's highly original interpretation: that the scrambling of time employed in Faulkner's presentation of events masks a key source of meaning that has been overlooked in previous analyses. By jumping backward and forward in time, Faulkner's narrative structure emphasizes thematic parallels between disparate events, enabling him to juxtapose and link the days of slavery with 20th-century America. By reordering Faulkner's "miscegenation of time," Kinney exposes additional meanings that more starkly situate Faulkner's work in the context of the vital issues of his era - issues that retain their urgency to the present day
