Description : A Synoptic Hamlet is an alternative response to the editorial problems of this multiple-text play. Like most critical editions, it presents the early texts in a manner helpful to the general reader by modernizing spelling and punctuation, and emending non-sensical readings. However, it does not hide the text’s diversity by exclusively selecting readings from either the Second Quarto or the First Folio in order to reconstruct a single-reading version corresponding to the authentic Hamlet. Rather, it makes their significant variants immediately available in the line itself (offering alternative editorial interpretations of identical or similar readings at certain points). Thus the reader can have a direct appreciation of the divergence and similarity between these early texts from which the Hamlet of today is known.

Description : Hamlet was "the Mona Lisa of literature" long before T. S. Eliot gave it that apt characterization in his review-essay on "Hamlet and His Problems" (1919). The cause of that questionable shape was chiefly the action, or deferral or lack of action, of the Prince, and what it all meant. This was problem enough without even taking account of the fact that the Hamlet of the quarto edition of 1604 is not quite the same Hamlet as the one of the posthumous Folio edition of 1623. Similar but by no means the same: there are hundreds of differences of word and phrase between the two, and the Folio contains passages not found in the quarto but does not contain some that are, including the quarto's last soliloquy, "How all occasions do inform against me / And spur my dull revenge." But these differences are small compared with those of the Hamlet actually first published, in 1603, a version entirely unknown for two hundred years after the Folio was published, when a copy was found in a closet in 1823--one of the most important, mystifying, and controversial Shakespearean recoveries of the nearly two centuries since. Thus the fullest version (1604) was published second, with the Folio giving, then, still a third version. This First Quarto is only about half as long as the Second, though it contains a scene between Horatio and the Queen that is not in either of the other two versions. And even within itself it is a play divided: some parts are identical to the Second Quarto and the Hamlet most familiar to readers, but others are either unique or so different in expression (inferior?) that the differences are hard to explain, because "there is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so"--as Hamlet himself says--in the Folio, but not in Q2 or Q1. "To be, or not to be, I there's the point." It is not a matter of asking the "real" Hamlet to (please) stand up--all the Hamlets are real--but of determining what historical realities these Hamlets do or may represent, how they came to be as they are. Is Q1 the record of an early draft, incompletely revised by Shakespeare, for example, or the product of an actor's variable memory? Reflecting on these and related problems with a view to solution is the purpose of the present collection. But controversy is inherent in the activity, the times, the writers' perspectives, and the subject, and disagreement is an integral part of this collective endeavor by distinct individuals.

Description : Shakespeare's career-long fascination with the Mediterranean made the association a natural one for this first World Shakespeare Congress of the Third Millennium. The plenary lectures and selected papers in this volume represent some of the best contemporary thought and writing on Shakespeare, in the ranging plenary lectures by Jonathan Bate on Shakespeare's islands and the Muslim connection, Michael Coveney's on the late Sir John Gielgud, Robert Ellrodt's on Shakespeare's sonnets and Montaigne's essays, Stephen Orgel's on Shakespeare's own Shylock, and Marina Warner's on Shakespeare's fairy-tale uses of magic. Also included in the volume's several sections are original pagers selected from special sessions and seminars by other distinguished writers, including Jean E. Howard, Gary Taylor, and Richard Wilson. Tom Clayton is Regents' Professor of English Language and Literature and chair of the Classical Civilization Program at the University of Minnesota.

Description : The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare is the most comprehensive reference work available on Shakespeare's life, times, works, and his 400-year global legacy. In addition to the authoritative A-Z entries, it includes nearly 100 illustrations, a chronology, a guide to further reading, a thematic contents list, and special feature entries on each of Shakespeare's works. Tying in with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, this much-loved Companion has been revised and updated, reflecting developments and discoveries made in recent years and to cover the performance, interpretation, and the influence of Shakespeare's works up to the present day. First published in 2001, the online edition was revised in 2011, with updates to over 200 entries plus 16 new entries. These online updates appear in print for the first time in this second edition, along with a further 35,000 new and revised words. These include more than 80 new entries, ranging from important performers, directors, and scholars (such as Lucy Bailey, Samuel West, and Alfredo Michel Modenessi), to topics as diverse as Shakespeare in the digital age and the ubiquity of plants in Shakespeare's works, to the interpretation of Shakespeare globally, from Finland to Iraq. To make information on Shakespeare's major works easier to find, the feature entries have been grouped and placed in a centre section (fully cross-referenced from the A-Z). The thematic listing of entries - described in the press as 'an invaluable panorama of the contents' - has been updated to include all of the new entries. This edition contains a preface written by much-lauded Shakespearian actor Simon Russell Beale. Full of both entertaining trivia and scholarly detail, this authoritative Companion will delight the browser and reward students, academics, as well as anyone wanting to know more about Shakespeare.
