Books in The Shakespearean International Yearbook
  • The Shakespearean International Yearbook surveys the present state of Shakespeare studies, addressing issues that are fundamental to our interpretive encounter with Shakespeare's work and his time, across the whole spectrum of his literary output. Contributions are solicited from among the most active and insightful scholars in the field, from both hemispheres of the globe. New trends are evaluated from the point of view of established scholarship, and emerging work in the field encouraged, to present a view of what is happening all around the world. Each issue includes a special section under the guidance of a specialist Guest Editor, as well as a production diary or record of a notable Shakespeare performance.

    An essential reference tool for scholars of early modern literature and culture, this annual captures, from year to year, current and developing thought in Shakespeare scholarship and theater practice worldwide.
  • Reviews: 'In the crowded field of Shakespeare studies The Shakespearean International Yearbook stands out for its distinguished contributions. The range of contributing scholars is worldwide. The members of the editorial board are leaders in their profession. The focus on methodologies and controversies, and on timely topics such as "The Globe, old and new", provides a forum for careful and up-to-date discussions of central issues.'
    David Bevington, Phyllis Fay Horton Professor in the Humanities, University of Chicago.
