Charting Shakespearean Waters: Text and Theatre
Charting Shakespearean Waters: Text and Theatre contains 11 wide-ranging essays on different plays and demonstrate a lively interest in Shakespeare: Shakespeare as text and Shakespeare as theatre; Shakespeare in his age and Shakespeare through the ages. These papers deal with contemporary contexts (Pericles and navigation; A Midsummer Night's Dream and Elizabethan household theatre); tradition, genre and a dialogic approach to Troilus and Cressida; language and style in Henry the Fourth Part One, and in the Sonnets; performance (past and present productions of Hamlet and Macbeth); translation (As You Like It) and modern appropriation (The Tempest). Angles on the English-Speaking World is published once a year and is intended as a lively forum for a broad range of literary, linguistic, cultural and historical studies from various theoretical standpoints.
