Anthologies (22)
Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 1, No. 62. Saturday, 22 Sep 1990.
 
Date:     Sat, 22 Sep 90 17:38 EST
From:     <WRIGHTS@CUA>
Subject:  Anthologies
 
     In his query about using paperback editions of Shakespeare, Hardy
M. Cook mentions the "theoretical and political implications" of using
an anthology.  I'd be interested to learn more about exactly what those
implications might be.  I assume that he means something besides the
tacit assumptions and biases of the editor(s), since these would
be evident in separate paperback editions as well.  Does the
anthology format itself raise certain problems for readers and
teachers?
