  • From the Editor
    • Abstract: I write here to bid two farewells—the first on behalf of all of us at Shakespeare Quarterly to our brilliant colleague Barbara A. Mowat who died on 24 November 2017; the second from me to the readers of SQ whom I have been delighted to serve (with a hiatus during the tenure of David Schalkwyk) since taking over as Editor in 1997.Barbara came to the Folger Shakespeare Library in 1985 to head the Folger's academic programs and to serve as Editor of Shakespeare Quarterly. She was an exemplary leader in both positions, and under her stewardship SQ achieved the preeminence in Shakespeare studies that it continues to hold today. A glance into the SQ archives reveals a bevy of essays she patiently coached into being from ... Read More

  • Romans, Egyptians, and Crocodiles
    • Abstract: The places in which Shakespeare departs from, elaborates, or rewrites his Plutarchan original provide Antony and Cleopatra not only with its most distinctive characteristics but also with much of its artistic force. The scene on Pompey's galley is a striking case in point. For Plutarch, it is noteworthy for Pompey's refusal to heed Menas's urging that he should seize the opportunity to assassinate Octavius Caesar, Mark Antony, and Lepidus so that he can assume power in their stead.1 Shakespeare retains Plutarch's narrative outline but offers a much more detailed depiction of the moment that Menas would have Pompey exploit. Perhaps the most celebrated feature of this depiction is the exchange between Lepidus and ... Read More

  • Was Shakespeare "not a company keeper"': William Beeston and MS Aubrey
           8, fol. 45v
    • Abstract: Ms Aubrey 8, fol. 45 is a slip of paper bound into one of three folio volumes at the Bodleian Library that contain John Aubrey's biographical "minutes"—better known to modern readers as his Brief Lives. The manuscript began life as a set of field notes about the dancing master and cartographer John Ogilby, which were jotted down by Aubrey in a tavern as he talked with the comedian John Lacy in 1681. These notes were later shuffled in among the pages on which Aubrey drafted his life of Ogilby, thereby preserving a second, distinct group of inscriptions. A memorandum on the back of the paper slip, seemingly written in haste while Aubrey and Lacy conversed, directs the antiquary to a promising source of information ... Read More

  • Finding the Remedy: Measure for Measure, Puns, Rules
    • Abstract: The following essay can be read as an extended attempt to justify the claim that the word "remedy" is a pun in Measure for Measure—one that, to my knowledge, has since gone unnoticed. I have chosen to risk frustrating my reader by withholding the significance of the pun on "remedy" until a crucial moment toward the end of the essay. Not only do I first want to present a reading of the play within which my claim might appear more persuasive, but also I want initially to elucidate what is involved in justifying one's sense that a word means what it does, and then more broadly to consider the nature of justification itself, which is something with which Measure for Measure is deeply concerned. What I offer will be ... Read More

  • Hamlet's Moment: Drama and Political Knowledge in Early Modern England by
           András Kiséry (review)
    • Abstract: Hamlet's Moment is much more than a book about Hamlet, although it is also very much that. Anchored in the years before and after 1600, Kiséry's analysis extends far beyond the "moment" of its title, tracking long-term historical developments that transformed the theater's engagement with politics and political knowledge. From a preoccupation with "what it meant to be king, and what it took to be king," early modern drama turned to the consideration of "what it meant to be employed, and what it took to be employed" in politics as a profession (5). What it took, according to Kiséry, is above all the ability to talk politics—to be in the know, but also, and much more important, to be fluent in the language of ... Read More

  • Shakespeare and Early Modern Religion by David Loewenstein and Michael
           Witmore (review)
    • Abstract: Participants in debates over Shakespeare's religious (or lack of religious) leanings have sometimes displayed a fervor that would not have been out of place among the confessional combatants of Reformation and Counter-Reformation Europe. The "hot ardent zeal" to claim Shakespeare for Catholicism, or to destroy that claim, has not infrequently been of the kind that Shakespeare said "set[s] whole realms on fire" (Timon of Athens, 3.3.35-36). The essays in this volume take a decidedly cooler approach to Shakespeare's engagement with religious belief. The editors assume that religion is important for Shakespeare's writing, but they are open to the unpredictable, often elusive, ways in which belief figures in the plays. ... Read More

  • Shakespeare's Binding Language by John Kerrigan (review)
    • Abstract: In his meditation on "What is a 'Relevant Translation''" Jacques Derrida writes, "When I swear, I swear in a language that no human language has the power to make me abjure, to disrupt, that is to say, to make me perjure myself" (quoted in Kerrigan, 194). John Kerrigan's Shakespeare's Binding Language offers an extended challenge to these lines. Derrida might draw attention, as Kerrigan puts it, to "the perplexities of a speech which says that speech has no power to undo a speech act" (194). But, as Kerrigan goes on to argue, binding language does not always bind. Oaths can be retracted; bonds can be undone; and knots and charms, like plots, can unravel. An analysis of Henry V reveals, for example, how oaths "can ... Read More

  • Shakespeare and the Visual Imagination by Stuart Sillars (review)
    • Abstract: As Stuart Sillars informs us in the opening chapter, "The aim of this book is to explore ways in which the structures, allusive practices and concepts of the visual art of Shakespeare's time were appropriated and transformed into the forms and ideas of the poems and the plays, and to argue that an awareness of these processes greatly enriches our knowledge of the canon" (1). Put differently, as Kristin Phillips-Court has shown, various forms of permeability and visual representation are involved in the interrelationships between the pictorial arts and Italian drama, which "derive from painting's lasting cognitive structures and cultural resonance." This is a field that in recent years has proved particularly ... Read More

  • Shakespeare and Textual Studies ed. by Margaret Jane Kidnie and Sonia
           Massai (review)
    • Abstract: Perhaps the most revealing indication of the public's general lack of interest in textual scholarship is the persistent failure of one of the world's largest booksellers, Amazon, adequately to distinguish one edition of a literary work from another. Yet, in its tendency to merge Arden, Cambridge, Folger, Oxford, Penguin, and a bewildering variety of print-on-demand texts of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century editions, Amazon also provides, in its own frustrating way, an impromptu snapshot of the ways in which our attitudes toward the Shakespearean text have shifted over time, and of the interventions that technology has made, and continues to make, in the fields of textual scholarship and editing.These processes ...

  • Shakespeare on the University Stage ed. by Andrew James Hartley (review)
    • Abstract: Andrew Hartley notes in his introduction to this collection that "what can be said about campus Shakespeare is that the conditions around its production are unique in various ways" (2), and he adds that "any assumption that [these productions] are necessarily inferior is often simply wrong" (3). These wide-ranging essays by international scholars investigate the social, political, cultural, and economic context of these productions, although these scholars sometimes make starkly different evaluations about the productions' artistic and pedagogical value.Although the essays are not divided by topic (but really should have been), a rough organization exists. The initial three essays are historical. Peter Holland ... Read More
