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)
