I'm a bit out of the loop, but back when I was in school, Michael
Bristol was (and I gather still is) considered to be the definitive
expert on Bakhtin/Shakespeare and Carnival.  His book Carnival and
Theater (Routledge, 1985) has probably been updated, but it's an
excellent place to start.  More recently, Michael has published an
article in William Shakespeare: Hamlet Case Studies called "Funeral
Baked Meats: Carnival and the Carnivalesque in Hamlet."  Michael's work
is very comprehensive.

Take a look at Michael Bristol's Carnival and Theater (1985), and then
at Peter Stallybrass and Allon White's The Politics and Poetics of
Transgression (1986). There are also one or two pieces by Richard Wilson
that deal with carnival elements in Julius Caesar.

Cheers,

To Kathy Dent:

Two groundbreaking books I would recommend are Peter Stallybrass's and
Allon White's *The Politics and Poetics of Transgression* and Michael
Bristol's *Carnival and Theater: Plebeian Culture and the Structure of
Authority in Renaissance England*.

Michael Bristol's _Carnival and Theater_ comes immediately to mind. Also
the collection, ed. Ronald Knowles, _Shakespeare and Carnival: After
Bakhtin.

Best,

With an appropriately modest cough ... I deal with the carnivalesque in
_Hamlet_ and _Antony and Cleopatra_ in my book _Hyperion and the
Hobbyhorse_ (Delaware, 1996).

If 'carnivalised' writing means incorporating a range of voices and
registers into critical discourse, there's nowhere near enough of it,
although Eagleton's own Shakespeare commentary plays around with
academic protocols.   Simon Shepherd's essay 'Acting against Bardom:
some utopion thoughts on workshops', which is a virtuoso - and
authoritative  - critical performance about performance, makes a pretty
good fist of it.  It's helpfully reprinted in my collection Shakespeare
in Performance: Contemporary Critical Essays (Palgrave, 2000).
