Canonising Shakespeare : stationers and the book trade, 1640-1740( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canonising Shakespeare offers the first comprehensive reassessment of Shakespeare's afterlife as a print phenomenon, demonstrating the crucial role that the book trade played in his rise to cultural pre-eminence. The period 1640-1740 was the period inthe time in which Shakespeare's canon was determined, in which the poems resumed their place alongside the plays in print, and in which artisans and named editors crafted a new, contemporary Shakespeare for Restoration and eighteenth-century consumers. A team of international contributors highlight the impact of individual booksellers, printers, publishers and editors on the Shakespearean text, the books in which it was presented, and the ways in which it was promoted. From radical adaptations of the Sonnets to new characters in plays, and from elegant subscription volumes to cheap editions churned out by feuding publishers, this period was marked by eclecticism, contradiction and innovation as stationers looked to the past and the future to create a Shakespeare for their own times"--

Erotic politics : desire on the Renaissance stage by Susan Zimmerman( Book )

2 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking eroticism on the English Renaissance Stage as a paradigm for issues of sexuality and identity, these essays examine the nature of sexual definition and desire in early modern culture. Recent studies of Renaissance sexuality have focused on the subversive potential of gender reversal: Erotic Politics widens the arena of debate to study the structure and cultural definition of erotic desire. The authors view the stage as a primary site for the display of eroticism and use it to decipher what may be radically different cultural codes and expectations: the Renaissance stage is seen as a decoder for erotic experience, which is used both to reinforce and subvert expected sexual behaviour. Any examination of Renaissance eroticism must acknowledge the profound shift in sexual sensibility which took place after the seventeenth century, a shift which introduced concepts of sexual dimorphism and homosexuality' as a category. Thus, for example, several essays in Erotic Politics view the theatrical convention of cross-dressing or transvestism, as a contribution to a distinctly erotic dynamics.; Contributors argue that such a dynamics served to deconstruct gender itself, leaving conventional categories of sexuality blurred, confused - or absent. This volume also addresses a crucial theoretical problem in postmodern cultural criticism: how can subjective phenomena, such as Renaissance erotic experience, be examined without recourse to psychoanalytic theory? In seeking to reposition the conventions and subversions of gender and desire in terms of one another, these essays open up a new and distinctive perspective in the cultural debate

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reading Readings brings together essays by eighteen critics and textual scholars on texts that play a crucially informative role in the history of Shakespeare reception: the eighteenth-century editions. These texts tell, in extraordinary detail, the response of the age that granted Shakespeare his canonical status. They show, too, the development of a new range of critical and bibliographical practices, and display the workings of influential eighteenth-century cultural and market forces."--BOOK JACKET
