Kay Pilzer asks for _one_ book to assist in the study of Shakespeare and the
early-modern period.  Before revealing my nomination, I will state that I take
this to mean not "the most important book of Shakespeare criticism," but the
one that will be the most general help for both WS and the period in which he
wrote.  That said, I nominate Julia Briggs, _This Stage-Play World_.

In response to Kay Pilzer, I would have to ask two questions: how early in the
Modern period, and are you primarily interested in criticism or production?  If
you are thinking about early twentieth century and are interested mostly in
production, then I would recommend either Cary Mazer's "Shakespeare
Refashioned: Elizabethan Plays on Edwardian Stages" or Dennis Kennedy's Looking
At Shakespeare: A Visual History of Twentieth-Century Performance."  If
critical history, then Gary Taylor's "Reinventing Shakespeare" is the bible.
Hope these suggestioions help!

For Kay Pilzer, I recommend one book readily. John Wain's. Why? It strikes me
as honest and gifted, the product of a fine ear.
