Comment:        Re: SHK 14.22874 Introduction to Matters of Editing

Here's a book on editing matters that isn't recent or available because
it's not due until July 2004, but which looks as if it will address some
of the needs of Tom Bishop's next year's grad students.  From the latest
Cambidge University Press Catalog:

*The Modern Reproduction of Shakespeare's Drama"
edited by Lukas Erne and  Margaret Jane Kidnie

"Bringing together leading scholars to examine crucial questions
regarding the theory and practice of editing Shakespeare' plays, these
essays examine how what we know about early modern theatre practice, the
author and the printer will affect modern editorial decisions. Focusing
on key points of debate and controversy, this collection makes a vital
contribution to a better understanding of editorial practice."

Contributors: Lukas Erne, Margaret Jane Kidnie, Leah S. Marcus, H. R.
Woodhuysen, Paul Werstine, John Jowett, Ernst Hongimann, Sonia Massai,
Ann Thompson, Neil Taylor, Michael Warren, David Bevington, John D. Cox,
John Lavagnino, Barbara Hodgson.

280 pp.  $70.00  ISBN 0521830958

Bill Lloyd can't wait.
