Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The Book of Sir Thomas More was written in 1593-4 by Anthony Munday and Henry Chettle, was censored, and then revised by Shakespeare among others. The eight essays explore such internal aspects as dramatic unity, idiom, vocabulary, and spelling, and such external aspects as the context of its writing, its performance, and its relation to Shakespeare's canon. Printed on acidic paper. Published by the Amorphous Institute Press this interesting book is distributed by the U. of New Mexico Press. Contributions range widely- from birth of the Minox to atrocity propaganda and are more textual than visual (fortunate as the photos reproduce poorly on this rough bookpaper). Annotation c.
