Product Description


"The essays in this volume offer readers a diverse array of critical approaches that challenge our definitions of and processes for editing dramatic work. The collection showcases innovative methodologies related to editing practices, making it tremendously valuable to scholars, editors, theatre artists, and educators alike." - Jill Stevenson, Marymount Manhattan College, USA

Product Description

The critical work of editing performance texts poses particular challenges for historians and scholars of the early periods of English literature, not least of which is the ephemerality of performance and the fragility of the archival evidence. The contributors to this volume engage with this challenge, asking how might editors of early period drama and performance literature account for the performance histories implied in the extant documents. The resulting chapters work in dialogue with each other to challenge many current givens in medieval and early modern drama research, especially around periodization and editorial practice, and around what constitutes the archive. Divided into three key parts headed 'Enabling Manuscripts to Speak', 'Performance Traces in the Archive' and 'Editing Through Performance', the chapters collected here showcase cutting-edge research practices and approaches in textual editing, and in manuscript and performance studies to produce new ways of reading and working for students and scholars alike.
