9780198117780: Shakespeare Verbatim: The Reproduction of Authenticity and the 1790 Apparatus

This study challenges traditional treatments of Shakespeare through a study of their textual imperatives in the late eighteenth century. The examination of earlier treatments demonstrates that concepts now basic to Shakespeare were once largely irrelevant. Only with Edmond Malone's 1790 Shakespeare edition do such criteria as authenticity, historical periodization, factual biography, chronological development, and in-depth reading become necessary as parts of a tightly interlocked textual schema. Their emergence, this text shows, must be seen as a specific historical response to the problem the Shakespeare corpus has posed since its definition by the 1623 Folio: what to make of its heterogeneity and irregularity. Malone's apparatus unified and regulated the texts by making them accountable to Shakespeare the "Author."

Margreta de Grazia is at University of Pennsylvania.

Review:


"Dazzlingly effective....This is one of the year's most important books--required reading not only for Shakespeareans, but for anyone who wants to explore the culturally specific interface between editorial presentation of texts and reader expectations from them."--Studies in English Literature


"We have de Grazia's wise and compelling book to show us a contradictory picture of our age and its puzzlement about post-modern textual studies."--Renaissance Quarterly


"Offers us a great deal of freshly considered information about the publishing history of Shakespeare and about legal changes in the concept of intellectual property between Shakespeare's day and Malone's, enlivened by snatches of very close reading indeed."--Times Literary Supplement


"Provides a stimulating survey of the development of eighteenth-century editing and Shakespearian scholarship....The book is the product of an acute, well-informed intelligence and deserves reading by anyone interested in the cultural production of "Shakespeare." "--Review

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1991. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Shakespeare Verbatim challenges traditional Shakespeare scholarship through a study of its textual primacy in the late eighteenth century. The book s examination of earlier treatments demonstrates that concepts now basic to Shakespeare studies were once largely irrelevant. Only with Edmond Malone s 1790 Shakespeare edition do such criteria as authenticity, historical periodization, factual biography, chronological development, and in-depth readings become dominant. However, their emergence then must not be seen as the overdue installation of proper scholarly and literary procedures, but rather as a specific historical response to the problem the Shakespeare corpus has posed since its definition by the 1623 Folio. The remarkable efficacy of Malone s apparatus over the past two hundred years testifies not to its truth , but rather to its endorsement of a continuing Enlightenment epistemology irreconcilable with the past linguistic and mechanical practices it purports accurately to reproduce. This challenging book has both practical and theoretical implications for Shakespeare studies in the 1990s and beyond. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780198117780
