Review

"This collection of 28 essays provides a historical overview of the conditions of Shakespeare′s world." Library Journal <!––end––>

<!––end––>"No playgoer, reader, teacher or scholar should be without this elegant and indispensable guide to Shakespeare. It brings together the best in recent scholarship on the social history, contemporary reading, and institutions and material practices of writing, playing and printing in early modern England. Kastan has assembled a collection of essays with his peers and presented them with his characteristic intelligence and grace. The definitive Companion to Shakespeare." Karen Newman, Brown University

"A worthy companion indeed – every serious student of Shakespeare should carry this adroitly compiled collection of specialist essays on essential background constantly with them. Kastan has brought together a star cast of experts to help us to hear Shakespeare′s distinctive voice, with all its historical and intellectual resonances, in a fresh and sharply clarified context." Lisa Jardine, Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London

"Literally indispensable for anyone interested in Shakespeare." Patricia Parker, University of Stanford

"David Kastan has put together a dazzling collection of essays on Shakespeare. And one doesn′t expect to be dazzled by that rather sedate animal, a Companion. This Companion represents the very best in recent scholarship and is at the same time lively, accessible, and often surprising. It is indeed indispensible." Peter Stallybrass, University of Pennsylvania

"Between them these specialist writers have assembled a series of essays which represent, for the time being at least, the last word in Shakespearean scholarship and research. It is difficult to think of any aspect of the dramatist′s life, times and work which is not covered by this companion."


"This companion can be confidently recommended as a paragon of Shakespearean research." K.C.Harrison, Reference Reviews

"The publication [...] of the monumental Companion to Shakespeare, edited by David Scott Kastan, is a major event and one that should be celebrated for the breadth and depth of scholarship the book makes available to students." Year′s Work In English Studies
