Alternative Shakespeares

Profiling Shakespeare

Volume 3

Marjorie Garber, Harvard University, USA

Edited by Diana E. Henderson, MIT, Massachusetts, USA

The title of this collection, Profiling Shakespeare, is meant strongly, in its double sense. These essays show the outline of a Shakespeare rather different from the man sought so earnestly and eagerly by biographers from his time to our own. And they also show the effects, the ephemera, the clues and cues, welcome and unwelcome, out of which Shakespeare’s admirers, citers, fans and dedicated scholars have pieced together a vision of the playwright, whether as sage, lover, psychologist, guidance counselor, or successful businessman.This collection brings together classic pieces, hard-to-find chapters, and two new essays. Here, Garber has produced a series of essays at once serious and highly readable, each one ranging broadly across time periods (early modern to postmodern) and touching upon both high and popular culture.

Series: New Accents This volume takes up the challenge embodied in its predecessors, Alternative Shakespeares and Alternative Shakespeares 2, to identify and explore the new, the changing and the radically “other” possibilities for Shakespeare Studies at our particular historical moment. Alternative Shakespeares 3 introduces the strongest and most innovative of the new directions emerging in Shakespearean scholarship — ranging across performance studies, multimedia and textual criticism, concerns of economics, science, religion and ethics — as well as the “next step” work in areas such as postcolonial and queer studies that continue to push the boundaries of the field. The contributors approach each topic with clarity and accessibility in mind, enabling student readers to engage with serious “alternatives” to established ways of interpreting Shakespeare’s plays and their roles in contemporary culture. The expertise, commitment and daring of this volume’s contributors shine through each essay, maintaining the progressive edge and real-world urgency that are the hallmark of Alternative Shakespeares. This volume is essential reading for students and scholars of Shakespeare who seek an understanding of current and future directions in this ever-changing field.

Gothic Shakespeares Edited by John Drakakis, University of Stirling, UK and Dale Townshend, University of Stirling, UK

“They are remarkably comprehensive, timely, and informative, and an essential way to keep current with the fundamental ideas in Shakespearean criticism.”

Shakespeare was both influenced by and influential in the rise of the gothic in literature and culture. Shakespeare’s plays are full of ghosts, suspense, fear-inducing moments and cultural anxieties which many writers have since emulated, adapted and appropriated.

—Arthur Kinney, University of Massachusetts, USA

Looking particularly, though not exclusively, at the rise of gothic fiction in the eighteenth century, the contributors argue that without Shakespeare as a point of reference the gothic mode in fiction and drama may not have evolved in the way it did. They argue that the complex dialogue with Shakespeare through the use of quotation, citation, and analogy requires to be radically appraised in the light of recent Literary Theory, and the popular extensions of the Gothic into modern modes of representation such as film. This volume offers a truly original and provocative account of Gothic reformulations of Shakespeare.

Unfinished Business in Cultural Materialism Alan Sinfield, University of Sussex, UK ”If there were a version of Desert Island Discs for literary criticism, this book would top the list of things I would want with me to read again and again for its clarity of purpose, its generosity of spirit, the brilliance of its insights, and its ability to engage seamlessly and resonantly with current scholarship, contemporary politics, historical dynamics, and the meanings of Shakespeare.” —Lena Cowen Orlin, University of Maryland, USA, and Executive Director of the Shakespeare Association of America

This reassessment of cultural materialism as a way of understanding textuality, history and culture, has been written by one of the founding figures of this critical movement. It will produce new challenges for the field of Renaissance Studies.

Aristotle’s Legacy and Shakespearean Drama

Shakespeare in French Theory

Arthur Kinney

King of Shadows ”Shakespeare and Cognition is a fascinating and wide-ranging examination of why his plays, whilst rooted in the late sixteenth-early seventeenth century, have retained their appeal for four centuries.”

Richard Wilson, Cardiff University, UK Examining both the violent history and promising future of the plays, Shakespeare in French Theory is a timely reminder of the relevance of Shakespeare and the lasting value of French thinking.

—British Theatre Guide

Drawing on Aristotle’s metaphysics and contemporary cognitive literary theory, Arthur Kinney explores five key objects/images in Shakespeare’s plays - crowns, bells, rings, graves and ghosts - that are not actually seen but are central to the imagination of both the playwright and the playgoers. 2006: 224pp Hb: 978-0-415-97752-4: US $105.00 Pb: 978-0-415-97753-1: US $31.95

Ayanna Thompson, Arizona State University, USA

”A very significant contribution to the growing body of critical literature on Shakespeare appropriations within specific theatrical and critical traditions around the globe.”

This collection of fourteen original essays explores both the production history of colorblind casting in cultural terms and the theoretical implications of this practice for reading Shakespeare in a contemporary context.

—Jill Levenson, University of Toronto, Canada

“World-Wide Shakespeares is undoubtedly a valuable and timely addition to our understanding of what artists are doing to and with Shakespeare across the globe and how their work signifies both locally and internationally.”

Shakespeare and Child’s Play Performing Lost Boys on Stage and Screen

The Routledge Companion to Directors’ Shakespeare Edited by John Russell Brown, Middlesex University, UK ”Bringing directorial labour into sharp focus,this long overdue volume represents a valuable contribution to theatre history. It not only heightens our understanding of the art and craft of directing Shakespeare but also enables a comprehensive overview of over a century of directorial practice. This is a book to be read, and reread: there are deep pleasures here.”

Carol Chillington Rutter, University of Warwick, UK Arguing that contemporary culture uses Shakespeare to rethink these same issues today as we experience a post-modern crisis in “childness,” Shakespeare and Child’s Play first locates ideas of childhood in early modern theorizations and performances then analyzes a range of recent performances on stage and film that put our own culture’s conflicted responses to the emotive issue of the child squarely in view. 2008: 272pp Hb: 978-0-415-36518-5: US $124.95 Pb: 978-0-415-36519-2: US $35.95 eBook: 978-0-203-01658-9:

—Barbara Hodgdon, University of Michigan, USA

“An invaluable resource for anyone interested in modern Shakespeare production. The breadth of coverage is one of its greatest assets. A major contribution to Shakespeare performance studies.” —James Loehlin, University of Texas, USA

Acting From Shakespeare’s First Folio Theory Text and Performance Don Weingust, Tufts University, USA Do extra syllables in a line suggest how it might be played? Can Folio commas reveal character? Don Weingust places this work on Folio performance possibility within current understandings about Shakespearean text, describing ways in which these challenging theories about acting often align quite nicely with the work of the theories’ critics. Weingust looks at the work of Patrick Tucker and his Londonbased Original Shakespeare Company, who have sought to discover the opportunities in using First Folio texts, acting techniques, and what they consider to be original Shakespearean performance methodologies. Weingust argues that their experimental performances at the Globe on Bankside have revealed enhanced possibilities not only for performing Shakespeare, but for theatrical practice in general.

The Routledge Companion to Director’s Shakespeare is a major collaborative book about plays in performance. Thirty authoritative accounts describe in illuminating detail how some of theatre’s most talented directors have brought Shakespeare’s texts to the stage. A must-have work of reference for students of both Shakespeare and theatre, this book presents some of the most acclaimed productions of the last hundred years in a variety of cultural and political contexts. Each entry describes a director’s own theatrical vision, and methods of rehearsal and production. Notable entries include: Ingmar Bergman; Peter Brook; Declan Donnelan; Tyrone Guthrie; Peter Hall; Fritz Kortner; Robert Lepage; Joan Littlewood; Yukio Ninagawa; Joseph Papp; Roger Planchon; Max Reinhardt; Giorgio Strehler; Deborah Warner; Orson Welles; Franco Zeffirelli.

Shakespeare in Children’s Literature

Stephen Greenblatt

Gender and Cultural Capital

Mark Robson, University of Nottingham, UK

Erica Hateley, Kansas State University, USA

Series: Routledge Critical Thinkers

Series: Children’s Literature and Culture

Stephen Greenblatt is the most important exponent of “new historicism,” a dynamic critical movement which rejects the traditional reliance on individual canonical texts, exploring a multitude of other, more marginal works and voices. Questioning not just literary but social, political and cultural assumptions about knowledge and power, Greenblatt’s work has had a huge impact on contemporary theory.

Shakespeare in Children’s Literature looks at the genre of Shakespeare-for-children, considering both adaptations of his plays and children’s novels in which he appears as a character. Drawing on feminist theory and sociology, Hateley demonstrates how Shakespeare for children utilizes the ongoing cultural capital of “Shakespeare” and the pedagogical aspects of children’s literature to perpetuate anachronistic forms of identity and authority.

Learning to Curse Shakespeare in the Victorian Periodicals

Essays in Early Modern Culture

Kathryn Prince, The Shakespeare Institute, UK

Series: Routledge Classics

Stephen Greenblatt, Harvard University, USA

Series: Studies in Major Literary Authors

With a new introduction by the author

Shakespeare in the Victorian Periodicals offers an entirely new perspective on popular Shakespeare reception by focusing on articles published in Victorian periodicals. Shakespeare had already reached the apex of British culture in the previous century, becoming the national poet of the middle and upper classes, but during the Victorian era he was embraced by more marginal groups. If Shakespeare was sometimes employed as an instrument of enculturation imposed on these groups, he was also used by them to resist this cultural hegemony.

“Greenblatt writes with modest elegance, is a superb scholar and researcher, and deserves his status as the first voice in Renaissance studies today.” —Virginia Quarterly Review

Engines of the Imagination

The Renaissance World

Renaissance Culture and the Rise of the Machine

Edited by John Jeffries Martin, Trinity University, Texas, USA

Jonathan Sawday, University of Strathclyde, UK At what point did machines and technology begin to have an impact on the cultural consciousness and imagination of Europe? How was this reflected through the art and literature of the time? Was technology a sign of the fall of humanity from its original state of innocence or a sign of human progress and mastery over the natural world? In his characteristically lucid and captivating style, Jonathan Sawday investigates these questions and more by engaging with the poetry, philosophy, art, and engineering of the period to find the lost world of the machine in the pre-industrial culture of the European Renaissance. The aesthetic and intellectual dimension of these machines appealed to familiar figures such as Shakespeare, Francis Bacon, Montaigne, and Leonardo da Vinci as well as to a host of lesser known writers and artists in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This intellectual engagement with machines in the European Renaissance gave rise to new attitudes towards gender, work and labor, and even fostered the new sciences of artificial life and reason which would be pursued by figures such as Descartes, Hobbes, and Leibniz in the seventeenth century. Writers, philosophers and artists had mixed and often conflicting reactions to technology, reflecting a paradoxical attitude between modern progress and traditional values. Underpinning the enthusiastic creation of a machine-driven world, then, were stories of loss and catastrophe. These contradictory attitudes are part of the legacy of the European Renaissance, just as much as the plays of Shakespeare or the poetry of John Milton. And this historical legacy helps to explain many of our own attitudes towards the technology that surrounds us, sustains us, and sometimes perplexes us in the modern world.

Series: Routledge Worlds With an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses the history of ideas, political history, cultural history and art history, this volume, in the successful Routledge Worlds series, offers a sweeping survey of Europe in the Renaissance, from the late thirteenth to early seventeenth centuries, and shows how the Renaissance laid key foundations for many aspects of the modern world. Collating thirty-four essays from the field’s leading scholars, John Jeffries Martin shows that this period of rapid and complex change resulted from a convergence of a new set of social, economic and technological forces alongside a cluster of interrelated practices including painting, sculpture, humanism and science, in which the elites engaged. Unique in its balance of emphasis on elite and popular culture, on humanism and society, and on women as well as men, The Renaissance World grapples with issues as diverse as Renaissance patronage and the development of the slave trade.

Early Modern Prose Fiction

Reading Renaissance Ethics

The Cultural Politics of Reading

Edited by Marshall Grossman, University of Maryland, USA

Edited by Naomi Conn Liebler, Montclair State University, USA Emphasizing the significance of early modern prose fiction as a hybrid genre that absorbed cultural, ideological and historical strands of the age, this fascinating study brings together an outstanding cast of critics including: Sheila T. Cavanaugh, Stephen Guy-Bray, Mary Ellen Lamb, Joan Pong Linton, Steve Mentz, Constance C. Relihan, Goran V. Stanivukovic with an afterword from Arthur Kinney.

Bringing together some of the best current practitioners of historical and formal criticism, Reading Renaissance Ethics assesses the ethical performance of renaissance texts as historical agents in their time and in ours. Exploring the nature and mechanics of cultural agency, the book explains with greater clarity just what is at stake when canon-formation, aesthetic evaluation and curricular reform are questioned and revised. Taking seriously the question of what to read requires us to consider exactly what it is that we do when we read and when we write about our reading. Reading Renaissance Ethics asks what sorts of events took place when Renaissance texts were first read and how this differs from the way we read and teach them now.

Rhetoric, Women and Politics in Early Modern England Edited by Jennifer Richards, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK and Alison Thorne, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK Rhetoric, Women and Politics in Early Modern England argues that women found a variety of ways to represent their interests persuasively, and that by looking more closely at the importance of rhetoric for early modern women, and their representation within rhetorical culture, we also gain a better understanding of their capacity for political action. Rhetoric, Women and Politics in Early Modern England presents an important new perspective on the early modern world, forms of rhetoric, and the role of women in the culture and politics of the time.

Each of the essays in this collection considers the reciprocal relation of early modern prose fiction to class distinctions, examining factors such as: • the impact of prose fiction on the social, political and economic fabric of early modern England • the way in which a growing emphasis on literacy allowed for increased class mobility and newly flexible notions of class • how the popularity of reading and the subsequent demand for books led to the production and marketing of books as an industry • complications for critics of prose fiction, as it began to be considered an inferior and trivial art form. 2006: 200pp Hb: 978-0-415-35840-8: US $120.00 Pb: 978-0-415-35841-5: US $34.95 eBook: 978-0-203-00458-6

.

Performing Race and Torture on the Early Modern Stage provides the first sustained reading of Restoration plays through a performance theory lens. This approach shows that an analysis of the conjoined performances of torture and race not only reveals the early modern interest in the nature of racial identity, but also how race was initially coded in a paradoxical fashion as both essentially fixed and socially constructed.

Our Scene is London

Shakespeare and the Cultural Colonization of Ireland

Ben Jonson’s City and the Space of the Author James D. Mardock, University of Nevada, Reno, USA

Robin Bates, Seton Hall University, USA Focusing on plays (Richard II, Henry V, and Hamlet) which appear prominently in the writing of the Irish nationalist movement of the early twentieth century, this study explores how Irish writers such as Sean O’Casey, Samuel Beckett, W. B. Yeats, G. B. Shaw, James Joyce, and Seamus Heaney resisted English cultural colonization through a combination of reappropriation and critique of Shakespeare’s work. 2007: 170pp Hb: 978-0-415-95816-5: US $95.00 eBook: 978-0-203-93080-9

With its three-part rubric of London, drama, and space, this study brings to the currently vigorous critical discussion of Jonsonian authorship the sense of how another sort of dramatic text—that of London’s spaces as interpreted through dramatic practice both in the streets of the city and on its stages—is also an integral factor in the emergence of the early modern author. 2007: 174pp Hb: 978-0-415-97763-0: US $95.00 eBook: 978-0-203-92851-6

Milton and the Spiritual Reader

City/Stage/Globe

Reading and Religion in Seventeenth-Century England

Performance and Space in Shakespeare’s London

David Ainsworth, Grinnell College, USA

D.J. Hopkins, San Diego State University, USA City/Stage/Globe not only organizes a selection of plays, pageants, maps, and masques in the historical and cultural contexts in which they emerged, but also uses performance theory to locate the ways in which these seemingly ephemeral events contributed to lasting change in the spatial concepts and physical topography of early modern London. 2007: 250pp Hb: 978-0-415-97694-7: US $95.00

Milton and the Spiritual Reader considers how John Milton’s later works demonstrate the intensive struggle of spiritual reading. Milton presents his own rigorous process of reading in order to instruct his readers how to advance their spiritual knowledge. Recent studies of Milton’s readers neglect this spiritual dimension and focus on politics. Since Milton considers the individual soul at least as important as the body politic, Ainsworth focuses on uncovering the spiritual characteristics of the reader Milton tries to shape through his texts. 2007: 321pp Hb: 978-0-415-96251-3: US $95.00 eBook: 978-0-203-92668-0

The Tower of London in English Renaissance Drama Icon of Opposition Kristen Deiter, Marywood University, USA The Tower of London in English Renaissance Drama historicizes the Tower of London’s evolving meanings in English culture alongside its representation in renaissance history plays. While Elizabeth I, James I, and Charles I fashioned the Tower as a showplace of royal authority, magnificence, and entertainment, the playwrights of the time revealed the Tower’s instability as a royal symbol and represented it, instead, as an emblem of opposition to the crown and as a bodily and spiritual icon of non-royal English identity.
