Editorial Reviews

Arthur F. Kinney
I have personally purchased and studied every one of the new Accents on Shakespeare volumes in the new series edited by Terence Hawkes and repeatedly turn to them as resources for my own research and teaching. My students - graduate and undergraduate alike - find them invaluable, as I do. They are remarkably comprehensive, timely, and informative, and essential way to keep current with the fundamental ideas in Shakespearean criticism.
Kiernan Ryan
Accents on Shakespeare is shaping up as everything a streetwise series of books on the Bard should be: engaged, imaginative, heretical and occasionally outrageous. No one who aims to have their finger on the pulse of Shakespeare studies can afford to ignore it.
