Textual Shakespeare: Writing and the Word

Overview

Holderness shows that both critical writing and Shakespeare editing are best understood as radical rewritings of an already re-written source, and that on this basis, contemporary textual theory can open the way to yet more inventive textual activities of reconstruction and translation.

Overview

Holderness shows that both critical writing and Shakespeare editing are best understood as radical rewritings of an already re-written source, and that on this basis, contemporary textual theory can open the way to yet more inventive textual activities of reconstruction and translation. This is demonstrated and explored in a series of chapters on and around individual Shakespeare plays.

Holderness stresses throughout the creativity involved not only in the act of writing, but in the many processes of rewriting that make up any historical culture. Drawing on a wide range of sources, from classical poetry to deconstructionist theory, from Anglo-Saxon verse to modern bibliographical scholarship, this is a critical-creative book for the twenty first century.

This is a book about Shakespeare, but also a book about writing and creativity, which has far-reaching implications for the reading, criticism and teaching of classic literature.

What People Are Saying

Stanley Wells
Forms a bold, imaginative, and remarkably wide-ranging contribution to thought about the origins and presentation of Shakespeare's text.
David Scott Kastan
Graham Holderness brilliantly explores the inevitable desire for, and the necessary frustration in finding, the Shakespearean original that lies behind the printed texts of his plays.
