Subject:    New REED Prepublication Website

 

Records of Early English Drama would like to announce a new outlet for its work, The Records of Early English Drama Pre-Publication Collections website, at www.reedprepub.org. This website makes the work of individual field editors available to scholars and students in draft form, in advance of their official publication as part of a fully searchable, online Records of Early English Drama database that is currently in development. For now, these materials are presented in a form resembling that found in the printed REED volumes. The transcribed records have not yet received editorial attention from REED’s staff paleographers and Latinists, nor have the notes and other editorial apparatus been checked for completeness and accuracy. 

 

Although none of the records so far posted on the site deal directly with Shakespeare, there is a good deal of evidence about touring minstrels and players in records of Southampton, Winchester and Winchester College from the late fourteenth century to the seventeenth.  E.g., Southampton copied into its own records several of the licenses from the Master of the Revels presented by visiting companies, some of which aren't known from other sources.  The college records also tell of the boys' own dramatic efforts. Other highlights of the website so far include the extensive records of the parish of St Laurence, Reading, including biblical plays and Robin Hood games. Several smaller Hampshire parishes offer records of kingales and other festive customs, and of the efforts to suppress those activities by civic and ecclesiastical authorities. We will be adding records from other parts of England—and Scotland as well—over the coming months. 

 

We encourage interested scholars to make use of these materials, with the understanding that they represent the work of the individual editors and are works in progress that will be checked by the REED editorial team before final publication. We also urge users to contact us with comments, suggestions or corrections that the editors may find helpful in preparing the final versions of their work.

Subject:    London Apartment Available

 

This is short notice, but I hope someone might be interested in our London apartment over Christmas and New Year.  

 

We have a spacious loft-conversion flat just south of the Thames, in Bermondsey. It can sleep six people, and is about a twenty-minute walk from Tower and London Bridges. It has a fabulous view over south London and a conservatory and roof garden (which, alas, are too cold for much use at this time of the year).  

 

There are plenty of buses into central London (20-30 minutes), and the Borough, London Bridge (Northern Line) and Bermondsey (Jubilee Line) tube stations are within 10-20 minutes' walking distance.

 

It’s in a now trendy area, with local supermarkets, and the famous Bermondsey Rd with its superb restaurants and art galleries is a 5-minute walk away, the famous Borough Market a fifteen-minute walk beyond that, and the Globe and South Bank within easy reach.

 

It's available anytime from 15 December to 5 January. We’d like to cover expenses, but price is negotiable. Please respond directly to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

Best wishes for the holidays to all.

Shakespeare’s Language

Lynne Magnusson 

Spring Symposium


Schedule

 

If the Muses themselves spoke English, they would speak with “Shakespeare’s fine-filed phrase,” Francis Meres commented in 1598, suggesting that Shakespeare’s linguistic art tapped the emerging potential of the English language and extended its resources. Sponsored by the Folger Institute Center for Shakespeare Studies as part of its triennial anniversary programming, this symposium will gather several dozen scholars with relevant research and teaching interests to explore Shakespeare’s still resonant language. With the help of invited session leaders, participants will consider reinvigorated contexts and new tools for its illumination and assessment. Four hundred years on, linguistic change is itself an important context, and the symposium will address not only variation in early modern English but also the effects of subsequent language change, changing perceptions of English, and translation on Shakespeare’s verbal art and its reception. Revisiting Renaissance education in the arts of language, symposium participants will ask how new perspectives on the everyday theatricality of the Latin schoolroom or its grammatical and rhetorical culture might inflect understanding of Shakespeare’s language. Turning to current-day tools, the symposium will look at how discourse analysis has developed beyond speech-act theory, whether reading Shakespeare’s performative utterance as passionate action, cognitive processing, or dialogic negotiation. With computer-assisted analysis of texts and large corpora rapidly transforming language study, the symposium will also create opportunities to try out some relevant tools for digital text-analysis.

 

Organizer: Lynne Magnusson is Professor of English at the University of Toronto. She is currently working on a book on  The Transformation of the English Letter, 1500-1620, a second book on ways to rethink Shakespeare’s language historically, and an edition of Shakespeare’s Sonnets

 

Speakers: Sylvia Adamson (The University of Sheffield), Amy Cook (Stony Brook University), Hugh Craig (The University of Newcastle, Australia), Mary Crane (Boston College), Jeff Dolven (Princeton University), Lynn Enterline (Vanderbilt University), Brett Hirsch (The University of Western Australia), Jonathan Hope (University of Strathclyde), Alysia Kolentsis (St. Jerome’s University and the University of Waterloo), Jenny C. Mann (Cornell University), Russ McDonald (University of London), Martin Mueller (Northwestern University), Terttu Nevalainen (University of Helsinki), David Schalkwyk (Queen Mary, University of London, and University of Warwick), Daniel A. Shore (Georgetown University), Stefan Sinclair (McGill University), Michael Witmore (Folger Shakespeare Library)

Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre Launches Web Site to Stream and Sell Films of Their Performances

 

Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, which is a reproduction of the original Globe Theatre in London, has been performing plays by Shakespeare and other playwrights of his time since 1997. In recent year, they began filming the plays, and have released a number of DVDs and Blu-Rays of their productions. (I reviewed their Twelfth Night.)

 

Today, Shakespeare’s Globe has launched the Globe Player website which brings these films closer to users around the world, offering streaming and sales of many of their productions. At a cost of £4 for rentals (which let you watch the play for 7 days) and £8 for purchases (also available for download for 7 days; make sure to back up your files), this is a fairly-priced offering, but in terms of content, there’s not a lot available, as of yet. Only 15 Shakespeare plays are available on the site, along with one play by Christopher Marlowe, Doctor Faustus.

In addition, the theater offers content from their Globe to Globe series, in which Shakespeare’s plays are performed in languages other than English, by companies from around the world. These films are available for rental for £3, and for sale for only £5. This will certainly attract a global audience, but there are no more than one or two plays in any language.

 

I have several of these films on DVD already, and, when I went to the site to buy one to try it out, I was disappointed. There are a number of comedies and history plays, but only one tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. There is no Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, Julius Caesar or any of the other well-known titles. It’s not so much that they’re reserving these titles for sale on DVD and Blu-Ray, but they simply haven’t filmed any of them yet, with the exception of Macbeth, in the 2013 season. The other recently filmed plays that are not on the site, also from last year’s season, are The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I assume they’ll offer those titles online after they’ve exhausted hard-copy sales.
