About the Authors
  • Shakespeare Survey is a yearbook of Shakespeare studies and production. Since 1948, Survey has published the best international scholarship in English and many of its essays have become classics of Shakespeare criticism. Each volume is devoted to a theme, or play, or group of plays; each also contains a section of reviews of that year's textual and critical studies and of the year's major British performances. The theme for Volume 73 is 'Shakespeare and the City'. The complete set of Survey volumes is also available online at https://www.cambridge.org/core/what-we-publish/collections/shakespeare-survey This fully searchable resource enables users to browse by author, essay and volume, search by play, theme and topic and save and bookmark their results.

    • The 73rd in the annual series of volumes devoted to Shakespeare study and production
    • The lively theme of Shakespeare and the City occupies most of the articles in this issue
    • A substantial review section covers books published on Shakespeare during 2019 and productions throughout the UK
