Subject:        World Shakespeare Bibliography

I'm pleased to report that the 1995 volume of the World Shakespeare
Bibliography should reach subscribers shortly.  Long-time users of the
Bibliography will notice some changes in the scope and taxonomy of the
annual Bibliography; these changes will also be incorporated into the
1983-95 disk of +The World Shakespeare Bibliography on CD-ROM+ (1998).

Scope first. Although productions of new adaptations will continue to be
listed in the Bibliography, entries for restaged adaptations (e.g.,
Stoppard's +Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead+; Verdi's +Otello+ or
+Falstaff+) will no longer be listed. Video or audio recordings will
continue to be included.

Taxonomy: General Shakespeareana/Biography and Milieu now how separated
sections for Biographical Studies and Milieu. Discussions of the
authorship controversy, which used to be lumped in with Biography and
Milieu now reside in a separate section of General
Shakespeareana/General Studies. Editions and Texts is now subdivided
into four sections: General Studies, Complete Editions, Selective
Editions, and Anthologies of Excerpts. The former Play Groups division
is now Play Groups and Poems (with a section for Poems), and the
Apocrypha is now subdivided by title of apocryphal work. And, each of
the individual works now includes a separate section for Pedagogy.

Where the recent annual volumes sported four indexes, the 1995 volume
has two: persons; subjects.

The 1987-94 disk of +The World Shakespeare Bibliography on CD-ROM+ is
scheduled for release in early summer. This one offers 24,768 entries,
with another 80,000 or so reviews and other pieces embedded within
entries.

As always, I encourage SHAKSPEReans to send offprints or notices of
their publications, to send reviews and/or programs of local
productions, and to notify me of items that might escape our
bibliographical net. Each year, we inadvertently omit books or articles
because they are unavailable to the local Bibliography staff or our ca.
100 contributors.

Please feel free to crosspost the following and please excuse multiple
postings.

CRITICAL SURVEY

The UK-based journal _Critical Survey_ is now entering its eighth year.
Previously the journal operated on a rolling themed issue format but, as
of this year, the format will change. The three annual issues of the
journal will now consist of: a modern issue; an early modern issue; and
an eclectic or guest edited issue. The editor for the early modern issue
will be Andrew Murphy and submissions should be sent to him at the
address below.

Submissions should be in the region of 5,000 to 7,000 words in length,
though shorter pieces, and exceptionally strong longer pieces, will also
be considered. Book reviews and reviews of electronic products (such as
electronic editions) are also welcome. In general, reviews should run to
about 1,000 words in length. Articles on all aspects of early modern
literature and culture will be considered, though preference will
generally be given to work which indicates a clear familiarity with
contemporary theoretical and critical issues. It is hoped that at least
one article devoted to contemporary debates in editorial and textual
theory will be included in each early modern issue. All articles
submitted will be refereed.
