Q: Important Shakespearean Criticism?
Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 2, No. 297. Monday, 11 Nov 1991.
 
Date: 		Sat, 9 Nov 1991 15:35:00 -0500
From: 		Jay Rush <rush@unoma1.bitnet>
Subject:  	Query: Critical Info Needed
 
 I am presently enrolled in a seminar focusing on Chaucer's
 Troilus and Criseyde both historically and critically.
 Each week we look at either a source for Chaucer's tale
 or a reception and then evaluate twentieth century crticism
 that has shaped the world of medieval studies and Chaucer
 particularly:  Robertson, Donaldson, Muscatine, Jousse, Allen,
 Spearing, and Dinshaw.  Our last meeting focused on Lee
 Patterson's overview of the Chaucer critical canon.  What I
 would like to discover and delve into is a similar critical
 approach to Shakespeare; critical sources which are fundamental
 in defining Shakespeare criticism.  If any or all of you have
 relied on or utilized a particular critical "giant" for your
 study and work, I would appreciate any information upon such
 sources.
                                           Thanx, Jay Rush.
 
	[Ed. Note: I don't wish to discourage members from replying to
	this query, but would like to mention that a discussion of
	"Classic Criticism" took place on SHAKSPER in September 1990,
	and can be followed in digests 1.0057 - 1.0059.  We certainly
	didn't cover all the ground there is, but some interesting
	observations and recommendations were made.
 
	SHAKSPEReans can retrieve the September 1990 Logbook from the
	SHAKSPER Fileserver by issuing the interactive command, "TELL
	LISTSERV AT UTORONTO GET SHAKSPER LOG9009 SHAKSPER".  If your
	network link does not support the interactive "TELL" command,
	or if Listserv rejects your request, then send a one-line mail
	message (without a subject line) to LISTSERV@utoronto, reading
	"GET SHAKSPER LOG9009 SHAKSPER".
 
	For a complete list of files available, send the command "GET
	SHAKSPER FILES SHAKSPER" to obtain an annotated index.
 
	For further information, consult the appropriate section of your
	SHAKSPER GUIDE, or contact the editor, <
