    Reviews & endorsements

    "As a collection, these essays group together several different ways of looking at the play without relying on a conception of a pure original, offering a strategy for analyzing how a text accrues meanings and how those meanings are transformed over time even as they are related to some, however hypothetical, original." Essays in Theatre Jennifer Feather, Brown University

    "a very attractive and useful volume in the series begun over half a century ago." - Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England Jay L. Halio
