Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This collection of scholarly essays written in honor of Marvin Rosenberg expands on his study of the aesthetics of Shakespeare's plays by analyzing the verbal, aural, and visual implications of the text. Essay topics range from practical to theoretical and include language, text, historical influences, politics, and the effect of choices made by actors, directors, and stage designers on the viewer's interpretation. The quality of the entries varies. Each essayist makes a contribution to the understanding of Shakespeare; not all can match the clarity and sparkle of Rosenberg's writing style. Readers without a background in Shakespeare studies will not be able to place the subjects in context. Academic and large public libraries with extensive collections on Shakespeare will want this volume. Libraries owning nothing by Rosenberg would be better served by purchasing The Adventures of a Shakespeare Scholar (Univ. of Delaware, 1997), which provides an overview of his work.--Shana C. Fair, Ohio Univ. Lib., Zanesville
