9780521822558: Shakespeare as Literary Dramatist

Lukas Erne argues in this study that Shakespeare, apart from being a playwright who wrote theatrical texts for the stage, was also a literary dramatist who produced reading texts for publication. Contrary to a long-standing consensus, Shakespeare does not seem to have been opposed, or indifferent, to the publication of his plays, and he pursued a policy of trying to get them published. Accordingly, Shakespeare's long play texts survive in a literary format that would have required shortening before they reached the stage.

Book Description:

In this groundbreaking study, Lukas Erne argues that Shakespeare, apart from being a playwright who wrote theatrical texts for the stage, was also a literary dramatist who produced reading texts for the page. Contrary to a long-standing consensus, Shakespeare does not seem to have been opposed, nor indifferent, to the publication of his plays, but pursued a policy of trying to get them published. Accordingly, Shakespeare's long playtexts survive in a literary format and would have been considerably abridged before reaching the stage.

About the Author:

Lukas Erne teaches English literature at the University of Geneva, Switzerland. He is the author of Beyond The Spanish Tragedy: A Study of the Works of Thomas Kyd (2001), and of a number of articles published in Shakespeare Quarterly, English Literary Renaissance, Essays in Criticism, Theatre Research International, and elsewhere.
