From the Publisher"...essential reading for theater historians, critics and editors alike"
-Ross King, TLS
‘Very occasionally a book comes along which should have a significant revisionary effect across a number of academic areas of study. Documents of Performance is such a book … Tiffany Stern calls into question many of the assumptions behind current early modern scholarship on authorship attribution, editing theory and practice, paratextual materials, playhouse performance, and play interpretation … Stern's important arguments on the patchiness of plays […] all early modern theater scholars will now have to take into account’.
-Anne Lancashire, Renaissance Quarterly
‘a major contribution to our understanding of early modern theater practice … required reading’.
-Alan Dessen, Shakespeare Studies
‘a wealth of intriguing insights … teaches us more about [documents’] use and importance than we thought could be known‘.
-Lukas Erne, Around the Globe
‘an important and fascinating book … challenges many misconceptions and sheds new light on the personnel and practices of early modern theaters and on the fragmentary character of the texts they required, produced, used, … Documents of Performance is … constantly enlightening … lively … impressive …’.
-C. E. McGee, Shakespeare Quarterly
‘outstrips the magisterial E. K. Chambers’.
-Katherine Duncan-Jones (book of the year, TLS)
