The Oxford handbook of early modern theatre by Richard Dutton( Book )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of new essays explores the social, political, and economic pressures under which the playing companies of Shakespeare and his contemporaries operated. It shows how they evolved over time to meet new challenges such as the opposition of City of London authorities, the possibility of permanent location in London, the re-emergence of boy companies c. 1600, and the great increase in court performance which began under James I. Essays also explore the practical everyday business of playing: acquiring scripts and playhouses, dramatic authorship, the contribution of financiers and entrepreneurs, rehearsing, lighting, music, props, styles of acting, boy actors, and the role of women in an 'all-male' world. A number of contributors address the methodologies of theatre history itself, questioning its philosophical premises and evaluating the nature of the evidence we have, such as that from stage directions in play-books or from the visual records.--From publisher description

Ben Jonson, authority, criticism by Richard Dutton( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ben Jonson: Authority: Criticism is the first book-length study of Jonson's literary criticism, and examines the ways that criticism defines his unprecedented role as a professional author. Each chapter explores a different facet: 'The Lone Wolf' looks at Jonson's role in creating a critical discourse to respond to a new literary market-place; 'Poet and Critic' explores the relationship between his 'creative' and 'critical' writing; 'Poet and State' traces his accommodations as an author with censorship and other forms of authority; 'The Laws of Poetry' relates his appeals to classical precedent to his insecurity in a world where literary conditions were very different from those of ancient Greece and Rome; 'Jonson and Shakespeare' examines the old supposed rivalry as evidence of competing definitions of authorship. Throughout Richard Dutton suggests how Jonson's criticism set the terms for the profession of letters in England for more than a century. Finally an appendix provides a representative selection of Jonson's critical work

10 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Shakespeare's A midsummer night's dream by Bruce Coville( Book )

14 editions published between 1980 and 1996 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This New Casebook on A Midsummer Night's Dream traces the response of critical theory to play pecualiarly informed by modern preoccupations: imagination, representation and power; sexual repression and subjective transformation, patriarchal society, class structures and the limits of language. The essays collected here - New Critical Marxist, Feminist, New Historicist, Cultural Materialist, Poststructuralist, Performance-oriented and Deconstructive - show the range of modern responses to these issues in the text. The introduction and endnotes on individual items elucidate the main themes and methodologies, showing how each essay contributes to a vigorous wider debate about the Shakespearean text in modern culture
Licensing, censorship, and authorship in early modern England : buggeswords by Richard Dutton( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Licensing, Censorship and Authorship in Early Modern England examines in detail both how the practice of censorship shaped writing in the Shakespearean period, and how our sense of that censorship continues to shape modern understandings of what was written. Separate chapters trace the development of licensing in the theatre, and the response of the actors and dramatists to it. There are detailed examinations of how censorship affects our reading of four major playwrights: Marlowe, Shakespeare, Jonson, and Middleton, and how the control of printed books compared with the regulation of the stage
Epicoene; or, The silent woman by Ben Jonson( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Epicene is now one of the most widely studied of Johnson's plays. Brilliantly exploiting the Jacobean convention whereby boys played female roles, it satirises the newly fashionable, and sexually ambiguous world of the West End of London, where courtly wit rubs shoulders with commercial values." "This authoritative new edition is based on a thorough re-examination of the earliest texts. The introduction analyses the play as originally written for the newly formed Children of the Queen's Revels, and performed at the little-known Whitefriars Theatre. Dutton discusses the composition of the play, which took place during a critical period in Jonson's life and career, where he was established as the principal writer of entertainments at the court. His relationships at the time with ambitious with such as John Donne, Sir Edward Herbert and the actor Nathan Field are examined as models for the principal characters."--Jacket

Ben Jonson by Richard Dutton( Book )

11 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in English and Esperanto and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new collection of essays, Richard Dutton examines the literary and cultural climate of Jonson's age, the concept of authorship itself, and its place in the transition from a largely oral culture to one predominantly of print, the workings of patronage, and the nature of a literary marketplace situated between the royal court and the expanding City of London. In Jonson's career we can detect the beginnings of the modern world. The essays here, selected with that in mind, offer detailed readings of all the major plays, Sejanus, Volpone, Epicene, The Alchemist and Bartholomew Fair as well as the poems and later plays only recently recovered as genuinely engaging pieces for the stage
