Defining Shakespeare : Pericles as test case by MacDonald P Jackson( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'That very great play, Pericles', as T.S. Eliot called it, poses formidable problems of text and authorship. The first of the Late Romances, it was ascribed to Shakespeare when printed in a quarto of 1609, but was not included in the First Folio (1623) collection of his plays. This book examines rival theories about the quarto's origins and offers compelling evidence that Pericles is the product of collaboration between Shakespeare and the minor dramatist George Wilkins, who was responsible for the first two acts and for portions of the 'brothel scenes' in Act 4. Pericles serves as a test case for methodologies that seek to define the limits of the Shakespeare canon and to identify co-authors. A wide range of metrical, lexical, and other data is analysed. Computerized 'stylometric' tests are explained and their findings assessed. A concluding chapter introduces a new technique that has the potential to answer many of the remaining questions of attribution associated with Shakespeare and his contemporaries."--Jacket

Words that count : essays on early modern authorship in honor of MacDonald P. Jackson( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Words That Count contributes to ongoing debates about the nature and identity of authorship in early modern England. With its discussion of solo plays and verse, close and distant two-person collaborations, and multi-author collaborations, it widens our understanding of the varied authorial and theatrical practice of the period from the late 1580s to the early 1620s. At the same time, the volume examines the relation of internal and external evidence, and demonstrates old and new methodological principles and research tools that can identify and analyze objective data to ascertain individual and collaborative authorship and thereby launch new volleys of critical questions."--Jacket

Determining the Shakespeare canon : Arden of Faversham and A Lover's Complaint by MacDonald P Jackson( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Editors of Shakespeare's Complete Works must decide what to include. Although not in the First Folio collection of 1623, The Two Noble Kinsmen and Edward III have now entered the canon as plays co-authored by Shakespeare. Determining the Shakespeare Canon makes the case for lifting Arden of Faversham, first published in 1592, over the same threshold. A wealth of evidence indicates that Shakespeare was wholly or largely responsible for several of its central scenes (constituting Act III in editions divided into acts), and that the domestic tragedy can thus be added to the mounting list of his dramatic collaborations. Shakespeare's beginnings as a playwright are due for reconsideration. The second half of this volume provides solid grounds for accepting that publisher Thomas Thorpe's inclusion of A Lover's Complaint within the 1609 quarto of Shakespeare Sonnets was justified. While A Lover's Complaint has long been part of the Shakespeare canon, according to most editors, the poem's authenticity has been vigorously challenged in recent years. Its status is crucial to how critics assess the authority of the quarto's ordering of sonnets and interpret the structure of the sequence as a whole. These two problems of attribution are each addressed in five separate chapters that describe the converging results of different approaches and rebut counter-arguments. Stylometric techniques, using the resources of computers and electronic databases, are applied and the research methodologies of other scholars explained and evaluated. Quantitative tests are supplemented with traditional literary-critical analysis

Thomas Middleton and early modern textual culture : a companion to the collected works by Gary Taylor( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Middleton and Early Modern Textual Culture is not only a companion to The Collected Works of Thomas Middleton, which every scholar of Renaissance literature will find indispensable. It is also essential reading for anyone interested in the history of the book in early modern Europe. The book is divided into three parts. The first part, on 'The Culture', situates Middleton within an historical and theoretical overview of early modern textual production, reproduction, circulation, and reception." "The rest of the volume supplies the documentation for claims made in the first part. Part II, 'The Author' includes detailed evidence for the canon and chronology of Middleton's works in all genres, greatly extending previous scholarship, and using the latest corpus-based attribution techniques. This section situates individual authorial agency in the space between larger institutional forces and the material specificity of particular textual embodiments. Part III, 'The Texts', contains a full editorial apparatus for each item in the Collected Works, an Introduction, which summarizes and extends previous scholarship, is followed by textual notes, recording substantive departures from the control-text, variants between early texts, press-variants, discussions of emendations, and (for plays) an exact transcription of all original stage directions. Cross-references make it easy to move between the two volumes. This authoritative account of the early texts includes some extraordinary complicated cases, which have never before been systematically collated."--Jacket
