In a period of ten years, Shakespeare wrote a series of tragedies that established him, by universal consent, in the front rank of the world's dramatists. Critics have praised either Hamlet or King Lear as the greatest of these; Ernst Honigmann, in the most significant edition of the play for a generation, asks: why not Othello? The third of the mature tragedies, it contains, as Honigmann persuasively demonstrates, perhaps the best plot, two of Shakespeare's most original characters, the most powerful scene in any of the plays and poetry second to none. Honigmann's cogent and closely argued introduction outlines the reasons both for a reluctance to recognise the greatness of Othello and for the case against the play.This edition sheds new light on the text of the play as we have come to know it, and on our knowledge of its early history. Honigmann examines the major critical issues, the play in performance and the relationship between reading it and seeing it. He also explores topics such as its date, sources and the conundrum of `double time'.'Honigmann's extensive knowledge illuminates this play at every turn, making this the best edition of Othello now available.'Brian Vickers, Review of English Studies

MÖGE DER VERS MIT EUCH SEIN! Der Barde aus Stratford begibt sich in eine weit, weit entfernte Galaxis. In Shakespeares Star Wars treffen zwei Welten aufeinander, die sonst nicht in einem Atemzug genannt werden. Aber warum eigentlich nicht? Immerhin haben die Figuren aus Star Wars viel mit den Dramatis Personae eines elisabethanischen Dramas gemein: Es gibt einen weisen (Jedi-)Ritter und einen bösen (Sith-) Lord, der eine schöne Prinzessin gefangen hält. Auch der jugendliche Held, der zur Rettung eilt, fehlt nicht. Hinzu kommen noch ein kampferprobter Draufgänger und dessen treuer Begleiter. Ian Doescher hat mit diesem Drama in Stile des großen Meisters Episode IV umgedichtet und dabei alle Vorteile genutzt, die das neue Medium zu bieten hat. Das Resultat ist ein einzigartiges Lesevergnügen.

This dictionary explores the language of domestic life found in Shakespeare's work and seeks to demonstrate the meanings he attaches to it through his uses of it in particular contexts. "Domestic life" covers a range of topics: the language of the household, clothing, food, family relationships and duties; household practices, the architecture of the home, and all that conditions and governs the life of the home. The dictionary draws on recent cultural materialist research to provide in-depth definitions of the domestic language and life in Shakespeare's works, creating a richly rewarding and informative reference tool for upper level students and scholars.

The Routledge Handbook of Shakespeare and Memory introduces this vibrant field of study to students and scholars, whilst defining and extending critical debates in the area. The book begins with a series of "Critical Introductions" offering an overview of memory in particular areas of Shakespeare such as theatre, print culture, visual arts, post-colonial adaptation and new media. These essays both introduce the topic but also explore specific areas such as the way in which Shakespeare’s representation in the visual arts created a national and then a global poet. The entries then develop into more specific studies of the genre of Shakespeare, with sections on Tragedy, History, Comedy and Poetry, which include insightful readings of specific key plays. The book ends with a state of the art review of the area, charting major contributions to the debate, and illuminating areas for further study. The international range of contributors explore the nature of memory in religious, political, emotional and economic terms which are not only relevant to Shakespearean times, but to the way we think and read now.
