Book description

Shakespeare Survey is a yearbook of Shakespeare studies and production. Since 1948 Survey has published the best international scholarship in English and many of its essays have become classics of Shakespeare criticism. Each volume is devoted to a theme, or play, or group of plays; each also contains a section of reviews of the previous year's textual and critical studies and of major British performances. The books are illustrated with a variety of Shakespearean images and production photographs. The current editor of Survey is Peter Holland. The first eighteen volumes were edited by Allardyce Nicoll, numbers 19-33 by Kenneth Muir and numbers 34-52 by Stanley Wells. The virtues of accessible scholarship and a keen interest in performance, from Shakespeare's time to our own, have characterized the journal from the start. For the first time, numbers 1-50 are being reissued in paperback, available separately and as a set.

Reviews

"As a collection, these essays group together several different ways of looking at the play without relying on a conception of a pure original, offering a strategy for analyzing how a text accrues meanings and how those meanings are transformed over time even as they are related to some, however hypothetical, original." Essays in Theatre Jennifer Feather, Brown University

"a very attractive and useful volume in the series begun over half a century ago." - Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England Jay L. Halio
