About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1923, this book addresses the old controversy regarding the exact location of the Globe Theatre. Through a wealth of evidence extracted from the records concerning Shakespeare's London, this book is a direct response to William Westmoreland Braines's pamphlet, issued by the London County Council in 1921, in which Braines demonstrated that the theatre must have stood to the south of Maiden Lane in Southwark. George Hubbard, unconvinced by Braines's theory, presents one of the most important and compelling cases of evidence for placing the site of Shakespeare's playhouse to the north of Maiden Lane. This exchange is the culmination of the controversy over the precise site of the Globe Theatre, which dominated the earlier part of the twentieth century. Detailed maps of London are included. This book will be of considerable value to scholars of Shakespeare as well as to anyone with an interest in theatre.
