Comment:        Re: SHK 9.0272  Q: Shakespearean Historiography

I've been working on the topic you mentioned-early modern
historiography-in my dissertation, although I focus on the portrayal of
historical women figures in drama.  Some of the newer sources I've found
are:

Paola Pugliatti's _Shakespeare the Historian_ 1996
Phyllis Rackin's _Stages of History_, 1993
Matthew Wikander's _The Play of Truth and State: Historical
Drama from Shakespeare to Brecht_ 1986.

Subject:        Sh. and Med. Historiography

To the very good books others have recommended to Michael Ullyot on the
subject above, let me add the striking essay on medieval historiography
in *Henry V* by Marsha Robinson in *Shakespeare's English Histories: A
Quest for Form and Genre*, 1996 from Medieval and Renaissance Texts and
Studies now based at Arizona State University.  A number of essays by
Joseph Candido have something to do with historiography in the history
play as an art form in the Renaissance.  Marsha Robinson is working on a
book on Protestant historiography in the English Ren.

Here's to our common enterprise,
John
